Whinchat at Conder Green, Lancashire

September 8, 2010
On clumps of thistles close to the pool at Conder Green, with a lack of competition from other birds, a Whinchat was making the most of the opportunity to feed on the seed heads. It appeared to be an immature bird with a spotted breast. It stayed in the immediate area for more than an hour but was very active, often perching on the Phragmites before dropping to the ground to feed there as well.
