Grey Wagtails and Spotted Flycatchers.


Cathy Ryden was over at Ravensthorpe Reservoir yesterday and found Grey Wagtails feeding fledged youngsters plus a Spotted Flycatcher. A Spotted Flycatcher was also at Sunderland Wood (Kelmarsh estate) yesterday. Every spring singing Spotted Flycatchers turn up at traditional breeding sites from years ago, but it seems that most then move on further north to breed in Scotland and beyond. Another species it seems that is being displaced further north due to climatic conditions...
