Notes on birds & wildlife from an east coast birder, wildlife enthusiast & photographer
Saturday, 15 May 2010
A text after work today saw me walking down the Corton ORT just after 4pm and meeting Andrew E, Rob W & Ricky F & our Chairman, we soon picked up a dull male Pied Flycatcher flitting about in the usual copse of trees it showed well briefly I managed to obtain a few shots. The constant "hueet" call softer and more urgent than say Chiff- Chaff/ Willow W call eventually revealed a female Redstart that flew along a hedgerow running west from the copse on the west side of the rail track, it flew regularly and was first seen back on before flying away and then seen more distantly in a tree. Green Woodpecker was also seen flying away.
Back at the Copse, a Spotted Flycatcher was seen flitting around in the very top of some trees.
