Spotted Flycatchers Tempsford

I popped over to Church End Tempsford yesterday afternoon and bumped into the pair of Spotted Flycatchers on site. Great to see them back again in 2017.

Added note returned today Monday 29th May and found the pair of adults feeding at least 3 fledged spott flies, so first brood are now out of the nest.

Blackcat Turnstone

The awkward to watch, Blackcat workings were good with a smart Turnstone, Common Sandpiper, eight Little Ringed Plovers, four Ringed Plovers, two Oystercatchers, Green Sandpiper, Redshank and Lapwings.  Not the first Turnstone record here following one last spring.
