Spotted Flycatcher: After yesterdays successful evenings trip to Marbury I decided I had to go back again today and improve on my images.
After a fruitless two hour wait in the same area I saw the birds last night I decided to take a wonder deeper in to Big Wood were I stumbled upon a pair fly-catching form a perch.
Suddenly one bird started to take a lot of interest in a nearby Birch Tree and then climbed inside an almost invisible hole!
The nest is awesome but seemed very small as the female always had her little head pocking out and had build up the entrance from mosses, but she was happy enough sitting there while the male came to feed her.
