Wheatear (Oenanthe Oenanthe)

A small migrant bird of the thrush family. These were caught, in the autumn, throughout the Middle Ages, on the Downs near Eastbourne - with the aid of horsehair snares. They were then half roasted, or potted in butter for sale in London. They are now a protected species in Britain.
