Wet Whinchat

Or also known as Whinchat Wednesday!

This Whinchat was present on a visit to Frampton Marsh at the weekend (more of which later) and was obviously suffering from the torrential downpour that had happened and was still happening when taking the photograph below.

But what a difference a bit of dry weather makes! The photos below are of the same bird, although it looks like a different species!

  2. That is a beautiful specimen John. Great shots.
    Although it looks as if they are in a bad way, they do bathe everyday as you know, if they can and I have seen a Blue Tit in the pouring rain purposely moving about wet leaves on a tree to get himself wet all over.

  4. Lovely shots John. Amazing how quickly they smarten up after a good soaking.

  5. Hi Roy,
    Yes, I have seen a Wood Pigeon doing the same thing, using the rain as a shower! It shows that the rain helps by looking at the other photos, the bird looks all spick and span!
