Stunning wheatears up on old railway line

These beautiful wheatears are back in their numbers up on the edge of the moor. The male has a grey back and crown and a striking black eye-stripe with a white stripe above called a supercilium. The female has altogether browner colouring with a cream supercilium. Both have buff underparts and a white rump and both have a characteristic bob and flick action. You should see them from the old railway line on the east side of Rosedale and at the top of Chimney Bank. Worth getting your walking boots on. Updale Natural History Recorder
