The Birds & the Bees...& the Butterflies

Our first summer visit to the Yorkshire Wolds this year.  A pair of Redstarts feeding chicks; at least 3 different Spotted Flycatchers - 2 of which seemed to be immatures, a family of Marsh Tits, including at least 6 youngsters, and lots of other stuff.
Redstart - still using the same nest site 5 years later!
