Back to the archives for another Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata), taken, as a full frame capture, in our garden in June, when we were lucky enough to have these lovely birds nesting. All four babies fledged successfully and I am hoping they will be back next year.

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

Great shot, Sylvia: not a bird I have seen up here, to my knowledge, but there again, possibly I would not recognise it.
Fine detail and an attractive 'pose'.
Ronnie.
