Westcot Down: 4 June

With the weather nothing like good enough for dragonflies, it was back to birding mode today! Driving along the road between Kingston Lisle and Lambourn, I was surprised to come across a summer plumage male Stonechat right beside the road. Unfortunately, it was directly into the light so very difficult to photograph properly. This isn't a bird normally seen in the county in summer, but I've no idea if it was breeding. The was no sign of a female despite some waiting

On the opposite side of the road, there was a better illuminated Corn Bunting singing hard from time to time. The same bush had a very skulking Whitethroat in as well!
