European Stonechat | Roodborsttapuit

Even while many Stonechats (Roodborsttapuit) fly to Africa for the winter season, some stay around. So this morning, while taking an early morning walk, I stumbled upon one of those. Since it had been freezing during the night, most of the reed stems were still covered with a thin layer of ice. Mute sunlight made for some very special lighting conditions as you can see ! It was a nice and windless morning 🙂 !

    Hey Hans,

    Ik had er al een paar mogen bewonderen van je. Super fijn sfeertje met die rijp op die rietpluimen. Hele mooie platen. Je kwam eigenlijk voor de Baardmannen, maar je blog gaat toch over deze Robotap’s.

    Klasse gedaan.

    Ja, wat een mooie winterplaatjes. Wist niet dat er ‘s morgens al zoveel rijp lag. Prachtig!
