Loved the "woodpecker" pose of this Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata), taken in our garden back in June. Still working from archives as haven't had time to go out and about with the camera.

Thank you all so much for the great response to yesterday's Goldfinch - very much appreciated as always Smile

Superbly processed and captured Sylvia. The one thing I notice with SF's is how well the legs and eyes appear.
Cracking shot
