Desert Wheatear - Photos

Having dipped out on Mike Passman's reported desert wheatear on two previous occasions due to being at sea when the call came in, I was pleased to receive a call at about 12.55hrs today from Eric Wotten. Sadly I was at the top end of Soussons at the time, but a quick walk back to the car and down to Leasefoot Beach at Thurlestone where the desert wheatear showed well until I left at about 15.15hrs with the bird appearing settled and feeding despite other people, including dog walkers, on the beach.
