Yellow Bellied Flycatcher

Yellow Bellied Flycatcher fighting for survival on the NJR
TheTamshee: reads with interest that the Norfolk twitchers are flocking to glimpse the "rare to these shores"
Yellow Bellied Flycatcher which has been seen in Europe for the first time. Normally a resident of the spruce bogs in Canada and the north-eastern United States they seem to have been de-railed while migrating to Mexico. It's also been a spectacle for the troops on the NJR. We have, what seems like hundreds flying around the rig at the mercy of four rather fat Sparrowhawks and a buzzard.

Rambling @ Lindinny Pond

TheTamshee and kids, beat back the bracken to explore the hidden gem at Lindinny Woodland. This little pond is very well camoflaged but the hide is set to far back to be useful.
