Spotted Flycatcher

The Spotted Flycatcher is a Summer visitor that arrives in UK in May and leaves again in October.


The first dry sunny day for quite a while, I was able to go for a local walk. I left it to the mid afternoon and wasn't sure I would see much.
With that in mind I only took my 'walk around' camera kit that would cover most subjects OK.
The one bird I did not expect to see was the Spotted Flycatcher.
Where I lived previously I would normally only see this species around the September time.

  1. Kauniit valokuvat! Onko tämä lintu yleinen teillä? Täällä se on kesällä aika yleinen.

  3. Well "spotted"!
    They used to be annual nesters in the grounds of the school where I worked, though I don't know if anyone else even noticed them.

  4. Well I don't know the difference between your camera kits but you have captured this bird extremely well, unless it was right up close to you! (still a great capture though). Lovely to see these birds, well done you.
