Pied Flycatcher

A trip to Yarner Wood on Dartmoor at this time of year is always a treat, although on this occasion the weather was a little against us with low temperatures and light rain, though it did brighten up a bit in the afternoon.

Pied Flycatchers are one of the main attractions here with nest boxes being used by a good number of birds. On all previous trips Wood Warblers have been present but alas this year none have arrived, hopefully next year they might fare better.

Adrian Davey has had a passion for birds from an early age when he would spend his pocket money on packets of ‘Swoop’ wild bird food to get close to the birds in the garden. His love of birds and the wildlife found in the world around him has inspired him to try to capture them in photographs as they go about their everyday lives.Living near Launceston on the (Devon side now) Cornwall/Devon border allows plenty of opportunities to visit many beautiful locations, favorites being the North Cornwall coast, the Lands End area and the Exe estuary,as well as traveling further afield both in Britain and overseas.
