This post is designed to be a short one as I refuse to 'steal' from Brian Rafferty what must surely be the ornithological discovery of the millennium and beyond.
These two photograph's are surely unique records of the Stonechat waging war against the elements recently thrown at it as an act of sheer survival. I don't have the need to explain these birds are feeding on Great Diving Beetles through a hole in the ice......how did the hole get there you may ask.
I'm not prepared to go further into this amazing story of discovery as BR should have - and deserves - the pleasure of your visit to his website for you to see his explanation and further photographic evidence.
Congratulations Brian I reckon you'll hit the headlines on this one......I'm truly amazed.
