Little Forktail

Little Forktail

Nanling, Guangdong, China

A very small Forktail found in rocky mountain streams from NE Afghanistan to Southern China but not as far South as Northern Thailand. They feed on insects stirred up by fast flowing water.
I found this pair next to their nest. They were very obliging but I struggled with the slippery rocks and dark conditions so had to push the ISO.

Very nice bird but clearly a real exposure challenge!
