Pied Flycatcher.

A walk at the back of Woodingdean today produced a smart female Pied Flycatcher along the valley I believe is Newmarket Bottom. Along with many Chiffchaffs and a few Willow Warblers it was an odd walk as most of the time was spent in a cloud!! The fog cleared a bit from time to time and the temperature went from cold to very cold and then warmish and back to cold. In the warmer bits a few Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock seen along with a Stoat running along a fence-line.
With nothing to photograph with the macro lens it was a bit of playing around with a 7-Spot Ladybird and a Daisy. Yes, it was a bit sad!! A good walk though with several good bits with the Flycatcher being very much the highlight!!

7-Spot Ladybird.

The light was really horrid when these were taken!!
