I think every one gets buzz from there first wheatear of the year and for me this was nearest I've been to one so a little more special The closer the bird the better the photo !!
As for black redstarts another cracking bird
There is 3 at ferry lane , rainham
This female was the first I photographed .
Then there are stonechats not sure which bird I would choose as a favourite ?
Then another female black redstart
And finally the male black redstart
the pick of the bunch this afternoon .
oh and a rat enjoying a break in the weather.
