Have been trying to get a decent photo of one of these for years

Aggressive little babblers!

  • That's a beauty S, guess they will be busy preparing their nests already as I believe they are quite early breeders.

  • They blend in so well, lovely bird and photo.

    Lot to learn

  • I suppose it does make it easier if, like me, you are used to a place where they haunt the grit trays, even if they only come out once a year. I hardly ever see them apart from that let alone catch one on camera.

  • Super photo. If you're ever down Weymouth way this sort of time of year, Radipole is excellent for them. Just pick a day with no wind and a drop of sunshine (harder than it sounds in Jan/Feb lol)
  • Hi

    yup I remember Radipole of old :)

    I believe my tyre marks may still be on the car park tarmac
