Bird ID Please .... oh and strange bokeh!!
Sep 18, 2007

Hello to all of the Birding people out there. Can you please help me identify this bird please, seen today in Cornwall. The closest I could find was a Stonechat but they illustrations seem to show a total black head. These chaps/chapesses below seem to have distict grey "chin" and "cap" along with the distinct blackness from beak around the eyes (like a sleeping mask)! Maybe they are Stonechats in some sort of transitional stage? This looks like a Male and Female I assume.

The other thing is the very very strange bokeh. The lens was the 100-400L IS and the subject was some distance away. Could it be to do with the UV filter? Its a Hoya Pro-1 UV.

FYI - these pics are very very very heavily cropped, high ISO etc and are not meant to be "quality shots" ...... just to see if I could 100% ID the bird.

Many thanks all - cheers - Mark
