Isabelline Wheatear: odd pose/behaviour
Just been sorting out images for a talk that I'm giving and was reminded of this bird that I saw a few years ago. A great bird, but I have always wondered about the wings-open pose: has anyone come across this behaviour before in this species?
I live close to the village of Newburgh in North-east Scotland. My local birding patch is the Ythan estuary and, especially in the winter months, Peterhead. Nowadays most of my birding time is spent gull watching.
This web site is really just a way to make my pictures useful in some way, rather than having them sitting unused on my computer. I hope you find them interesting, useful and stimulating. Most pictures are gulls, but there are some other birds dotted around - please browse through the older posts...
