Cow pats = Flies = Flycatchers - simples. Bird watching made easy! Well today anyway. I had turned down the chance to see a rare wader at Weymouth to spend the morning avoiding cowpats, not so easy when you're focussed on birds perched in Hawthorne and Elderberry bushes.
Spotted Flycatcher, one of 3 in the Anchor bushes today
No sign of any Common Redstarts today but 11 Blackcaps feeding on Elderberries nearby. Also a noticable increase in numbers of Robins. playing about with https://twitter.com/ to circulate info.
