A morning's local trip.

Not having been out birding for a couple of days I thought I'd have a quick look round locally to see if anything was about before it got too hot.

Went to the churchyard where a few weeks ago I used to see Spotted Flycatchers but which had gone missing lately.Soon saw a very tatty Robin acting like a Flycatcher but no actual Flycatchers that was till I was about to give up when I saw a pair of them on a distant gravestone.

Despite using all my formidable field craft skills I'm blowed if I could get near them for a decent shot before they disappeared.

Called in briefly at Marsh Lane but I was told I'd just missed a pair of Hobbies.Can't win them all!!!
