Time for a Chat

In second  third fourth of a series highlighting our garden visitors ( I realise as I write I’ve mentioned Sparrows,  a Hamerkop as well as Sunbirds) I thought I would showcase another frequent sighting, the Cape Robin Chat,

This bird seems to my eye to take the role of a blackbird back in the UK as it hops around the garden. Of course it’s colouring is anything else but that and I have yet to capture the amazing flash of gold tail feathers as it flies through the air. Even so the bright red orange belly and striking black and white head are pretty amazing in themselves. For more birds click here
