Catching flies


This Spotted Flycatcher has been around the garden for three days now. I've seen it occasionally perching on the washing line post (favoured by the woodpeckers), my runner bean poles and the fence (above), from where it swoops down towards the lawn to grab insects.

Hopefully I'll be able to get some better photos before it clears off.
