The Flycatchers have finally fledged, over a week later than last year.

An unusual amount of sickly birds around our feeder this year, mainly Greenfinches but a couple of Siskins and now a Bullfinch.

GS Woodpeckers are attending the feeder with young which scatters the other birds at the feeder when they arrive and we've had to net off the window to try and prevent fatal window strikes which have become unusually frequent.

Some friends of mine have also noted this, towards the Finnish / Swedish border in the north. Has been far cooler and wetter than expected and the birds are clinging to the feeders.

Great thread by the way with an amazing spectrum of birding beauty!

Thanks,
terrible here, cold, wet and very windy, a total waste of time for butterflies this year.

I've seen a single Blue, we get several species regularly but I've seen one single Common Blue so far. Black-veined Whites are only just on the wing, a full month later than last year, it's horrible.

Here's the first of our Pied Flycatchers that fledged

Great video. The Pied Flycatcher is a personal favourite of mine too.
