Red-breasted Flycatcher at Leagrave Marsh

The second Red-breasted Flycatcher for Bedfordshire was discovered at Leagrave Marsh by Jon Palmer on Sunday. The bird is frequenting a block of woodland bordering the River Lea - a small oasis of habitat surrounded by estates, tower blocks and factories.

A tasty fly for lunch !

Thanks Mark - although I found it much harder to give up the battery than to give up smoking !! :~) Andy.
