Was surprised to this bird nesting when we were at Lotherton last Sat.
He looked so miserable I just had to take the photo.
It was only when I got home I realised he had a flutterbye on his back.
Another wet and wonderful day ahead...enjoy!

He certainly does look cross. Perhaps he's got one of those big twigs stuck up his bottom. Blush

What an amazing find when you uploaded your image.
Even without the butterfly it's a great image of the bird in it's nest.
So fluffy you want to touch him/her.
