  • Friday 13th 🐦🌿Lucky for some!
Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata) scroll to see more ➡️➡️➡️
UK conservation status: 🛑 Red
I missed photographing this pretty little migratory species a few times for one reason or another - one time I had great views but my battery died, another time I was too far away, the next time was at Portland Bird Observatory one turned up outside the conservatory but the house cat had got comfy on my lap and dug her claws in when I tried to move! 😝 I had started to call Spotted Flycatcher my ‘Nemesis’. Then on Friday 13th a chap called Patrick had just found one in Richmond Park as I arrived. I got a couple of record shots before it flitted away but I was happy just to see it. A few hours later after everyone from our group walk had gone home I decided to see if it was still around. I was thrilled to relocate it by myself, around 100yds from where it was before. I got a sore neck from watching it catching flies in the sunny treetops but it was lovely to see this now rare sight. Spotted Flycatchers were once a common garden nesting species, but have suffered 87% decline since 1970. Hope it has a safe migration to Africa and will come back next summer.

  • A few more of those juvenile Green Herons learning to be stealthy while they slowly made their way in the reeds.

  • This Northern Shoveler was photographed in Minnesota. Their beak really is a shovel!  They are always found swimming in wetlands rarely coming on land other than to rest. They swing their shovel beak from side to side, down in the water, to filter out their food.
