Holland 2016 - 8 Stonechats (Saxicola torquatus, Roodborsttappuit)

The Stonechats are spring and autumn visitors to Kyushu and I usually see their Siberian cousins around Fukuoka. The migrating juveniles are already quite strong and mature.
Here in the Netherlands I got to see a fledgeling. Cute!!! Straight from the cornfield:

In another field, also near corn:

There seemed to be quite a few around

Rozebottels, waiting to be picked

In the same fields we encountered a family of Roe deer.
