Yellow Breasted Chat at Greenbury Point.

I’m having a little car trouble, so I’m staying close to home until I can get in to see my car guy., It’s working out OK, as it gives me a chance to explore nearby spots, and I’m finding a few birds and bugs.

I walked most of Greenbury Point yesterday and today, and got a few decent images and a bit of exercise.
