A full frame capture of a Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa Striata), taken in our garden last June. A pair had nested in a cavity in a brick wall and this is the female looking round to see if it was safe to return to the nest.

Many thanks for your comments on my last upload. Very much appreciated as always Smile

Lucky you to have such a nest.
Super capture.
I don't think I've seen one for myself.
