Pied Wheatear

Too close to resist, so off to Oldbury-on-Severn to try for the Pied Wheatear. Turned out to be a most pleasant twitch! One could almost say textbook.
Place found easily, then a rather nice stroll down to the sailing club where the bird was immediately performing well in the sunshine, flycatching etc all watched on by a small group of very civilised and good mannered fellow twitchers! Rounded off with a bit of chit chat with a few old friends. Smashing!!

Nice shot of the tail pattern
