A newly-fledged Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata) - this was the fourth baby to safely leave the nest a few weeks ago. Here he/she is on the maiden flight from nest to eaves.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterday's rather unappetising upload - very much appreciated as always Smile

That looks like a "big thankyou" pose, for keeping your eye on them and their parents of course

I recognise this fledgy Sylvia, but sadly only from the nest. Glad you got them outside before they went for cover.
Great capture

Great shot, Sylvia: nice to see where it has perched, and you have captured it in fine detail and in an attractive 'pose'.
