Pied Flycatcher

The Pied Flycatcher is a bird I have never been able to photograph before. 
So you can imagine my delight in finally being able to do so.
I found two females flying around a small copse on Portland Bill area. 
They were catching flies and using several perches in a small area.

I have yet to see the male of the species which is black and white rather than brown and white.


  1. Lovely photos Roy. It is always interesting that a bird that may seem drab from a distance is so lovely when you can capture the colours of the plumage and the way the feathers transform in flight. The white pattern on the wings is quite striking with the wings open.

    All the best
