Got to the churchyard mid morning and straight away met up with Kevin Grocock who had already rattled off some shots of the Flycatchers but when I joined him I struggled yet again to get any decent shots.Shortly afterwards it started to rain and while Kevin shrewdly raced off to his car I decided to shelter under a tree.Bad mistake!!!!! What started off as a gentle shower turned into the shower from hell and I got soaked but worst of all the camera and bins were getting soaked as well.
Kevin left after the shower had stopped but I gave it another hour.It turned out to be a losing battle because the Flycatcher out thought and out manoeuvred me the whole time and I could not get near it.Good fun but I lost.This is as near as I could get :-
This what happened when I crept closer :-
This is my good friend checking on me before he made his next move :-
Had a quick look in at Marsh Lane for the Hobby on the way home and saw one zooming over the CP pool when I got out of the car.Unfortunately as soon as I entered the hide it decided to rest in a distant tree and refused to come out.
