Spot flys

They use to be a lot more common than they are today, spotted flycatchers. I use to have one nesting between the house and a drainpipe in Forton Road and every year my brother and I would count the eggs from the bathroom window and then watch as they hatched and fledged. When Andy Grinter alerted me to a nesting pair on the outskirts of Chard near Wambrook, I went along to take a look...
