European stonechat

I've become a birdwatcher, its official! I got really excited yesterday as i walked up the dunes we live on in Perranporth, i spotted what i thought was a bullfinch. So ran home, grabbed my camera and went back to the spot i spied him. (I presume he is a he as he was protecting a female and a nest). I used the zoom lens on my Canon 400D and managed to get loads of shots of the bird, shot home and looked in my book. It wasn't a bullfinch as it had a white patch beneath its black capped head. I went on the web and found a brilliant site
(and joined) which showed a local find of a European stonechat. It is a beautiful little bird and really tuneful.
