Something to Chat about

A nice loose party of chats on the moor this morning, at least 8 Stonechat and 4 Whinchat. The Stonechats looked like they included a family party as there were several youngsters, these looked quite comical as they are moulting their grey and white spotted juvenile feathers for the smarter oranges, browns and blacks of the adult. Most of the head was still in the grey spotted juvenile feathers.
The heather is still in full flower making a great background.
