Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca)

Once located fairly easy to photograph, but I found it a real challenge to get the exposure right on a black and white bird.
Cannock Chase, Staffordshire
Date taken
Scientific name
Ficedula hypoleuca
Equipment used
Swaro 80HD + Kyocera SL400
A very nice capture indeed. I have the same problem with these birds - though ours all seem to nest high in trees and aren't so obliging at staying still. They do seem to stick to their territory though.
Lovely photo, exposure on this one spot on. There is only one male that sings in the woods i went yesterday. Sadly he is always really high up in the trees so although I can enjoy his song I cannot get a decent photo like yours.
A really great exposure Andy, great photo. I wonder were the bird was rung?
