Spotted Flycatcher

A Spotted Flycatcher family have been in residence on the reserve for the last few weeks.  They have all been very busy catching insects and preparing for their long journey back to sub-Saharan Africa.

Unfortunately this species has shown a 56% decrease in England over the period 1995-1911.  (Information from the British Trust for Ornithology)
