Richmond Park - 4th January 2017

We visited the park hoping to see the very pale Stonechat that has been seen here. We were successful, seeing the bird after locating the deer in an area of extensive bracken coverage.

It was only possible to get a record shot, but it looks similar to the Dungeness bird - and we also noted that it is a singleton unlike most Stonechats, and bore little resemblance to the other Stonechats in the park.
