076/365 Wheatear Oenanthe oenanthe

I really like the lighting on this one.  It was coming to the end of the day, and the sun had disappeared behind some thin clouds.  I had followed this juvenile Wheatear around for some time.  It is the same individual as the bird in Image 006, (here).  The background of this image is the Herefordshire county some distance below the Malvern Hills.  I really like the soft pastel colours in this. It won’t be long now before this species starts appearing back on the hills, heading north on their return migration.  I can’t wait.
