European Stonechat


As I took a stroll down Galway's promenade, near the end where people traditionally "kick the wall" for good luck, I was joined by this charming stonechat. I did kick the wall, by the way, and I guess you could say my having the chance to photograph this little guy was very good luck indeed. :-)

    1. The robin (Erithacus rubecula) and the European stonechat (Saxicola rubicola) are different birds.
