European stonechat (london, uk)⠀
this little bird is a male european stonechat. these small birds are predominantly found throughout the southeast and central parts within the united kingdom. ⠀
they are definitely one of the rarer small birds that i have photographed. they love a grass or heathland type habitat which lots of cover and these big fern bushes are an ideal living space. ⠀
wondering why they are called stonechats? well, these birds utter a sharp loud call that sounds like two stones being tapped together.
