PROBABLE STEJNEGER'S STONECHAT - SALTHOUSE.
After briefly seeing this bird on Monday and getting soaked to the skin, I decided to re-visit the bird again but this time in drier conditions! Sarah and I set off on the short journey early Wednesday (31st Oct) and took the dogs with us, Sarah took them off to the beach for a long walk whilst I headed straight to where the bird frequented. As soon as I got there I picked up the bird along the ditch from the 2nd gate, it kept a distance away for some time but it slowly moved closer along the ditch actively feeding and showing well. It then moved back along the ditch and did not show for some time, happy with the shots I had taken and very pleased it showed well I headed back to the car....this time not soaking wet!
