Strath Conon

We left sunny Nairn and popped over to Strath Conon for a day out in the rain on Sunday!  But it was worth it as we were visited by a pair of Stonechats.

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.

Note the dark head and white collar - and the rain!

This is the female
