Pied Flycatchers

I found two different Pied Flycatcher at Pegsdon on Monday and suspected a third (though could not be sure as did not get probable two birds in the same trees in view at the same time). As they are a description species I thought I best try to get pics so here are a couple of two different individuals. Birds were very active with also a minimum of 8, suspected 11 Spotted Flycatchers and at least four Redstarts, one Whinchat and a Wheatear located around the site which as teeming with warblers.

Tempsford Spotted Flycatchers

I popped into Tempsford today to try and catch up with the Spotted Flycatches. I think there are currently 2 pairs on site, one pair in the Churchyard the other in the old Rectory and had a lovely couple of hours just sitting and watching this afternoon in the sunshine. Great to see these lovely but increasingly rare birds in the county return again for hopefully another successful year.


I returned to site yesterday 22-06-2019 and could only see evidence of 1 pair on site, the pair that had been nesting in the Yew Tree at the entrance to the Churchyard seem to have disappeared.
