Northern Wheatear

Here's a banded male Northern Wheatear, posing nicely in front of some tidal flats. Normally it's more difficult to spot them: they look like this before you get binoculars on them, and like this afterwards. It's a good thing they make loud alarm calls as soon as they spot you, or we'd hardly spot any.
