Been a busy couple of weeks, we had man v horse through ours again, another wonderful day with great weather. Been to Croatia for a week as well.
Most of the broods have fledged now, only one pied flycatcher and a pied wagtail nests left in the nest boxes. But I have seen a spotted flycatcher flying to a nest. Whilst sat on the important seat in the bathroom I often saw the bird on an cable outside the window with insects in its mouth. from the garden I could see it flying to a ledge above the window into an old house martens nest.
In the garden we have seen a wren flying into the middle of a clematis with beak full of moss, so presumably nest building.
We noticed the pied flycatcher in the photo has a ring on it, probably one done by Pete our bird ringer friend. a shame I couldn't get to check its details.
