The Northern Wheatear is a colourful and beautiful bird and always present along our coast. You can easily determine the species by the white rump and tail when it flies. During spring and late autumn you can get close enough for some photos as well. You just need some patience. I have found some spots where I usually see this bird and during the last couple of weeks I have manage to take some photos. #1 is from this evening where it was posing for me for several minutes. This was after sunset so light was a challenge. #2 is from a week back when we had the first storm. It just lasted for a short period, started to pick up when I took this photo and was over the following morning. #3 shows a typical habitat. #4 is from spring time, but same area.
