Stonechats at London Wetland Centre

Having not seen any Stonechats for over a year at the London Wetlands Centre, it was a pleasant surprise to see three birds on Saturday afternoon.  A male and female (and a probable juvenile bird which was present), were feeding along the south side of the Thames towpath, and very very slowly moved up towards the wader scrape hide over a period of about an hour.

At one point they fed just to the right of the hide, giving the few people present a brief but stunning view of the pair:
