Stonechats a summer visitors to the Highlands to breed each year. They always perch high up on gorse or any thing that stands out - so they are quite easy to spot. We spotted this pair as I was driving through Stath Conon, so I parked and set up my tri-pod, with camera focused on what I hoped would be a good perch - and sat there hoping they would choose it to sit on! Here's the results.
