Pied Flycatchers at Yarner Wood, Dartmoor. 29th May 2019.

Male Pied Flycatcher

Our annual sojourn to Yarner Wood on Dartmoor for the Pied Flycatchers is always a sign that spring has sprung and summer will fast slip away from us!

Several pairs feeding young in the hundreds of nest boxes scattered about the wood.

No sign however of Lesser Spotted Woodpecker or Wood Warblers.

Heard Redstarts and watched Great Spotted Woodpeckers feeding their young.
