Red-breasted Flycatcher at Housel Bay, Lizard

This evening I saw my first Spring Red-breasted Flycatcher for Cornwall.  A female was feeding well tonight at the pond at Housel Bay, Lizard (same site as the Bufflehead).  From 8pm it started feeding feverishly and was continually calling (tacking like a Wren).  The species is regular in the Autumn in Cornwall but rare in Spring with just a handful of records only.


  1. Great shots Steve. Lighting was perfect. I'm envious!

  2. Wow ! Gorgeous bird and wonderful photos !
