Sopley Common Bird Walk

I took an afternoon walk across Sopley Common this afternoon, keeping careful distance from the odd other person I came across.

I managed to see several birds – most partly hidden or in the distance.  The most exciting distance one was this dartford warbler, that I got an “id” shot of.

I did manage a reasonable shot of this stonechat, that was not as far away.

As well as these Goldfinches, feeding on the Fir Cones.
