Spent a few hours at Napton-on-the-Hill this morning watching the Spotted Flycatchers at work! Normally their bunched in a single group but today they seemed a little more fragmented, with three separate gatherings!
|Eyes on the job in hand! Spotted Flycatcher ready to pounce!|
With regard to the Redstarts seen here regularly of late it seems I'm destined to miss out! Despite meeting up with Richard, Dave & Paul a little later in the morning there was no sign today. A Painted Lady butterfly was another highlight of the morning before heading off.

Having dropped the wife's car in for service in the afternoon I was marooned at the marina and took the opportunity for a walk around the grounds. Brown Hawker and Migrant Hawker, plus a pristine Brimstone on the dog walking meadow and a couple of local Ravens over.
