Thank you, Gaynor, I hadn’t see a Spotted Flycatcher either - luckily, a clever friend and the RSPB book helped to track it down
Morning Kevin and welcome to the community from me too (in Cheshire), What lovely photos to start your post up on here and very special to see a Spotted Flycatcher; One thing I noticed on the one I saw a few years ago which had recently fledged was its very long wings so perfect to aid their long migratory journey into sub-Saharan Africa. I also loved to watch it leaping up and "snatching" insects from the air, much like wagtails do. I wish I'd been there to see it but next best thing is your lovely photos of it and the robin so thank you.
