European Stonechat | Saxicola rubicola

England, June 2018

 

European stonechat song, captured at dawn as I made my way through Dartmoor National Park.

The bird had been vocalising from a concealed point amongst gorse scrub. I was able to record it for approximately one minute before it flew to another bush.

Sheep are audible throughout and were a constant, vocal presence throughout the morning's recording attempts.
