Here is my first Stonechat picture!

Stonechats are robin sized birds. Males have striking black heads with white around the side of their neck, orange-red breasts and a mottled brown back. Female¬†Stonechats lack the male’s black head, but have brown backs and an orange tinge to their chests.¬†Stonechats are frequently seen flicking their wings while perched, often doing so on the tops of low bushes. As its name suggests, Stonechats utter a sharp loud call that sound like two stones being tapped together. They breed in western and southern parts of the UK, but disperse more widely in winter.
