Spring in the woods

Teggs Nose CP should get me a few year birds, so an hour before work with hope of seeing Blackcap, Pied Flycatcher and Common Redstart..... thankfully they all obliged.

A male Blackcap was singing as I arrived at the small car park, too high up and silhouetted to make any attempt at an  image.

Not too long after I could hear the call of a Pied Flycatcher. Sure enough just a single male.


 
and right on cue the Common Redstart

 
Plenty of Willow warblers and Chiffchaffs also., while a pair of Great Spotted Woodpeckers mated.

Love the pied flycatcher. Marked so stark and great contrast.

Oooh, I love the markings of the Pied Flycatcher. Always so neat to see images of birds from other places!
