Pied Flycatcher

I think I've mentioned on a few occasions my excitement of Spring and its arrival. The birds that arrive at this time of year are the main reason for my excitement. Last week offered up some goodies in the form of Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs, but the real gems for me are only just getting here now. The Pied Flycatchers, Redstarts, Ring Ouzels, Cuckoos and others. When I see any of these I feel so privileged to be in the same location as them.
Last night I managed to see my first Pied Flycatcher and Redstart of the year. It was getting dark, but I managed a few shots. I hope to see some more in the next few weeks.

  1. Flied Piecatchers (as I tended to call them in my youth!) are such great birds - used to see them in old woodlands in Devon.

  11. You did well Adam, especially to find a male like that one. Around here it is really difficult to find Pied Flys on migration as they seem to go directly to their breeding haunts in the hills. Same in the Autumn - they just disappear south without so much as a "goodbye".

  15. Beautiful flycatcher. I didn't know they came with such formal black and white attire. Hooray for Spring! Although you always seem to have good birds.
