Pied Flycatchers Return

Out early this morning at Lydford Gorge, Dartmoor, Devon and spotted this Female Pied Flycatcher and her mate. She had just delivered food to the youngsters inside the nest whilst he stayed outside patrolling the area. The nest is unusual as normally, I think, it is open fronted like a Robin's nest.

 Eds - this is the usual nest box for Pied Flycatchers
