Stonechat




Stonechat - April - Haworth moor


Stonechat

The Stonechat is slightly smaller than a Sparrow and gets its name from the call which sounds like two pebbles being tapped together.

The male (main picture) in spring and summer has a black head, orangish breast and white on the neck. In winter the head is brown and breast is paler.

The female (inset picture) is duller in colour and do not have the males black head.

Can be seen all year round in the UK, can be found on heathland and edge of moorland.
