Saxicola torquata

Stonechat - Usually perches up on a stick or shrub. It flies down onto the ground, and often flicks its wings. Sadly Stonechats are decreasing in numbers. Heavy winters probably taking a few of these lovely little birds in Britain and Ireland. They prefer to be around coastal areas. Photographs from Co. Sligo and the Algarve in Portugal.
