Spotted Flycatcher

Working at home today; fortunately home is a grand total of 1 minute by bike from where Dawn Balmer found a pair of Spotted Flycatchers whilst she was doing a Bird Atlas 2007-11 Timed Tetrad Visit this morning! Not new for the BirdTrack Challenge (Andy Clements had one land in front of him whilst he was lunching al fresco in mid-May) but my first on the reserve. It was really encouraging to hear that they were gathering nesting material when Dawn found them this morning.

For Darren's challenge-within-a-challenge that's 121 for my Nunnery Lakes year list, 139 in total.


  1. SF was my last Lodge tick too, but I'm trailing badly - 109 (year)/135 (life). Still need HM and YW and should get TP on passage, but I might as well give up now as I'll be lucky to get to 120 by the year end...what you drinking Nick? ;-)

    2012 will be my year of revenge...
