Spotted Flycatcher – Park Farm, a former breeding location
Mad dogs and Englishmen. It was baking hot this afternoon on my first walk around the park in a few days. I wasn’t expecting to see a lot and I wasn’t disappointed! The highlights were; twenty two Mistle Thrush, which flew into the oaks along the eastern edge of the lake, a Kingfisher seen several times along the western edge and, on my way home, an adult Spotted Flycatcher in the garden of Park Farm. This is a former breeding location for this species but the first one I’ve seen here this year – another possible pair?
