Yellowhammers ......... just down the road, Egloshayle, Wadebridge

Male Yellowhammer


Every year Yellowhammers breed in the hedges at Egloshayle near my home.

This year there are two pairs within 100 yards of hedgerow so a lot of competition between singing males.

I was lucky this morning to get some shots of both sexes including singing males.

This isn't the first time I've tried these birds but persistence has finally paid off!

A short piece of video follows......
