Stonechat, Hyde Park

Stop me if you're getting bored but patch ticks keep showing up at Hyde Park when I'm rushing to work and least prepared. This morning's bad photograph from Hyde Park, served more as proof than entertainment, is courtesy of a confiding male Stonechat. 'Confiding' deserves a better shot than this but for me this was patch gold and, as well as the wind and bad equipment, my hands were shaking with uncontrollable excitement. 'Pull yourself together man, it's just a Stonechat!'

Here's the gen' for the Hyde Park compadres: It was showing in and around the oak saplings next to the Reformers' Tree Memorial. Other goodies were two juvenile Grey Wagtails feeding in, the currently drained, Italian Fountains.
