Always a target bird for me during the Autumn migration, the Spotted Flycatcher.
Its interesting to watch it catching flies and frequently returning to the perch, which was also helpful as I could remain in the same covert location to take more images.
Two for the price of one.
The Spotted Flycatcher that I was observing was joined by a Lesser Whitethroat.
You can observe from the images that I had to shoot through thick hawthorn bushes to get them.
The Lesser Whitethroat was far more difficult to observe as it skulks about in the thick bushes most of the time.
In my very amateurish assessment the yellow edging along its bill suggests to me that its a first year bird and this will be its first long flight South.
