More Flycatcher

I returned to the location where I had photographed the previous lot of Spotted Flycatcher and discovered several more of the same. These were very active flying out from their perches, catching airborne insects and returning to the perch. They were fairly approachable and if you didn't move about much they just continued eating and perching.

  5. That last photo is especially good. I was wrong about the swallows - yesterday morning there were over a hundred swallows and martins lining the telegraph wires that run down the fields.

  11. What fun! They look much more cooperative than my Great Crested Flycatcher. The elderberry bush looks like a popular hangout.
