Invasion
I could have given you a picture of a single Northern Wheatear, but this was the first time I'd managed to find 4 together on my patch; think they'd just arrived.

We were certainly being treated that day, what with yesterday's Skylark too.

Remember that big black hole in the dyke (wall)... it will likely feature in another of my pictures. But that's for another day.

Must be a real pleasure to see these birds arrive seasonally, something we get little of here in South Australia.

Wow, what a unique picture with four Northern Wheatears in one frame. Beautiful birds and setting yielding a magnificent picture D! TFS!
