Venus Pool - Spot Flys galore!

I’ve been neglecting VP of late but a report from Helen G of a family of Spotted Flycatcher was certainly worth checking out despite being well into the evening!

As she reported, they were still by the Norfolk ditch and one of the adults was using the fence posts to launch insect forays,






I couldn’t miss the end game for the insects – the three recently fledged youngsters were huddled together on a branch of one of the birch trees
















Here comes supper


















Family moment










Eventually, a noisy party of Jackdaws came on the scene and fledglings all flew off, relocating to the hedgerow nearby.

A quick check of the pool produced 3 LRPs, 2 Curlew, the usuas and this smart Black-tailed Godwit
