A Warwickshire Churchyard - Napton on the Hill

A pleasant couple of hours spent this morning in a very pleasant, peaceful Warwickshire churchyard.

Hi Kevin,
What is it with Spotted Flycatchers and churchyards?! The only reliable ones here are in a churchyard! Must be the peace and quiet!

I think you may be right, John.

Lovely photos of the little Spotty Fly Kevin, I must go hunting in churchyards! Love that Song Thrush too.

Cheers, Jan. The good things about old churchyards are the peace and the wide variety of birds that appear if you just sit and wait. Spot Flys seem to enjoy these habitats. If your in the area, have a look at Napton - its a magical place.

I am jealous Kevin I haven't seen one this year.

Plenty of time yet, Max. Glad you eventually got one at Berkswell.
