Spotted Flycatcher back at the Church

This morning a Spotted Flycatcher was back in last year’s spot, the woodland area of the churchyard.

It was manically flitting between the trees, and the eves of the Shire House, squeaking all the while.

Surprisingly quiet otherwise. Not many new summer migrants, the best being a Lesser Whitethroat along the Old Coach Road near Beanstalk.

  1. That’s good news Charlie. I’ve just returned from a farm where there was a regular Spotted Flycatcher nest, but sadly empty for a few years now.

  2. Took me ages to see one as a young birder – finally realised we had them summering in the garden of my parents’ house in Sutton Valence. Subtle things.

    A great shame we’re losing them – let’s hope this summer’s another bumper breeding season.
