Yellow Throated Bunting and other stuff............


A male Yellow Throated Bunting in one of the local parks yesterday morning..............



The park was a bit quiet but I was surprised to find a couple of Great Egrets on the small pond............


500mm is not ideal for big birds in dark places.................



It was feeding on (I think) tiny fish.................


The Hawfinches were still around but no tame ones this time...............



The commonest bird seemed to be Coal Tit, they were everywhere............


Other stuff around included Grey-headed Woodpecker, Bullfinch and the usual common stuff.

But my target was the Bunting and I managed to get a brief glimpse of it.................

  1. Yellow-throated (not Yellow Throated) Bunting is a very handsome bird indeed.
