Over a month ago I made a couple of visits to the Coronation Plantation in Wicklow. There were numerous breeding pairs of Whinchats throughout the area and I spent a couple of hours early one morning trying to get close enough to grab a few shots. They were very wary birds and not too confiding. While there I came upon lots of Fallow Deer and a few foxes. Lovely place.
