Set B4 - Bird Portraits - card information

15. Stonechat

15. Stonechat

Wherever there are rough areas of gorse, on cliff tops or rough hill land, there you may expect to see the bobbing, perky form of the stonechat. This pleasing little bird is a native and in some parts of the country remains the whole year. It feeds on insects, worms and spiders. The nest is made low down, perhaps at the base of a gorse bush or in a tangled bramble clump.
