The weather has not been great, but I bumped into a very friendly local quarryman who pointed out these and a few other incomers. Lesser Whitethroats, Spotted and Pied Flycatchers ducked and dived in the trees while the Swallows and Martins passed overhead. Even with an 800 iso, the speeds were dropping to 1/60th of a second. Great fun though but some sun would have been nice!
As always, confirmation of the I.D. would be good.
