Stonechat (Saxicola rubicola)

The European Stonechat is a small heathland bird whose call sounds like two stones being knocked together. They will
usually let you know when they're around, perching on top of gorse bushes, birch or pine saplings and calling loudly.
Stonechats are lovely and very beautiful little birds and I always look forward to seeing them.
