Having been away until the previous afternoon, I haven’t had much time over the last 7 days. And this morning was slightly curtailed by running various errands! I did however come across what’s undoubtedly yesterdays Pied Flycatcher in the wood at Belle Tout, a female showing nicely in the spring sunshine. Although yesterdays bird seems to have a more white on the greater covert tips and more white in the base of the primary feather seen here. I’ve only seen single birds in spring and all between the 12th and 16th April, a very narrow 5 day window.
