|[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista|
The whinchat (Saxicola rubetra) is a small migratory passerine bird breeding in Europe and western Asia and wintering in central Africa. At one time considered to be in thrush family, Turdidae, it is now placed in the Old World flycatcher family, Muscicapidae. Both sexes have a strong supercilium, brownish upper parts mottled darker, a pale throat and breast, a pale buff to whitish belly, and a blackish tail with white bases to the outer tail feathers, but in the breeding season, the male has an orange-buff throat and breast.
The whinchat is a solitary species, favouring open grassy country with rough vegetation and scattered small shrubs. It perches in elevated locations ready to pounce on the insects and other small invertebrates that form its diet.

This is a cute little whinchat. You have managed to get the ever precious catch light despite the distance.
Excellent focus on this chat and details are looking good. Bit closer view could have been better in my test to get rid of BLANK SPACE in the frame. In South Africa I just captured Stonechat.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,
