Spot the Flycatcher

This little fellow entertained us the other evening with his fly catching antics. Spotted Flycatchers aren’t apparent in the numbers they once were. Should we be worried? … I think so.

I spotted a Flycatcher

When we went to North Yorkshire recently there were very few Redstarts and loads, and I mean loads of Pied Flycatchers. In Wales earlier this month we saw very few Pied Fly’s but loads of Redstarts. Odd. Maybe a snapshot doesn’t paint the whole picture. One bird we did see in the Oak Vallies in Wales was the Spotted Flycatcher. Family parties were almost everywhere. So nice to see what is now becoming a scare bird in East Anglian doing so well in the west.

Heart Leap

A few days ago we came back from the very successful tour to Wales. The 2015 tour is now open for bookings. Wood Warblers, Redstarts, Pied and Spotted Flycatchers, Chough, Peregrine and of course Red Kites were all part of the cast but it was perhaps the Bottlenose Dolphins that were the biggest stars. As we stood looking out to sea a pod performed offshore leaping and somersaulting their way into everyone’s hearts.
