Hi All,

I normally only post about once a week but after returning from work saw this little fellow bouncing around the compound and managed to get some nice shots in the early evening sun. I've never seen a Bluethroat before so thought I'd share these.

Male Bluethroats are stunning, that one looks very confiding - what an excellent experience!

Hi Davem,

Yeah it was great photographing this little guy, he wasn't phased by me at all. He just strutted round the grass without a care.

Glad everyone like the pictures, not a bird I've seen before or since.
