Another visit to Maxey GP yesterday produced another Wheatear. This time it was a female, which provides a chance to compare the two sexes. This bird is a lot sandier in colouration and the face is not as well marked, but still a lovely bird. The white rump is clearly visible in this photo. The bird was a lot jumpier and it took me ages to get a shot of her after she decided to perch up on a tree just before the rain came.
