An Islay Chat

One family of birds that you are bound to see on Islay in summer are the Chats. The commonest one is the Stonechat and these are present all year round and love to perch in the roadside vegetation. The Whinchat is a summer visitor and is found on the moorland edge. What they both have in common is that they love to catch butterflies and moths for their young. So enjoy this weeks blog photo of a male Whinchat returning to the nest with a Tiger moth.
