Summer Migrants

A few weeks ago I managed to see my first Spotted Flycatcher of the year and also my first male Pied Flycatcher of the year. I've been looking for him for a while now without success. I think I was sat in some vegetation with my binoculars for a good hour, and in that time, many birds came to me. The weather was good, sunny and warm, and the day was perfect, with Cuckoo singing over one shoulder and Pied Flycatchers building a nest right in front of me. Doesn't get much better than that for me.

  1. I love those days when you can really lose yourself in the woods and there is lots of nature about.

    Cute birds. Only the Redstart is familiar to me after my stay in the UK, but the flycatchers look like little characters!
