Chats And Ospreys.

The Harrisend Stonechats.

I collected my best count of 6 Stonechats at Harrisend on 23 June since I found 10 there five years ago on 16 August 2010.
     
Stonechat Martin Jump 

Martin Jump had been monitoring this pair of Stonechat on Harrisend from late April to the end of May and eventually found five young birds had fledged from the nest, they are no doubt a part of the family from the six birds I saw as two pairs and two young on 23 June.

Thanks for the record and images Martin, much appreciated.

The Ospreys.

Osprey. Gary Jones.

Gary has been doing some travelling recently, including a trip up to Scotland and four to Rutland Water, all in the name of Ospreys, the result of which is some truly stunning photographs of this equally stunning bird, try These....The Foulshaw Ospreys are Here
