Pied Flycatchers - Like London buses

No apologies for posting a photo heavy series of images of a super showy Pied Flycatcher from Wanstead Flats this morning - especially after the last one was so difficult to pin down. The location this time was a small sheltered Oak in Long Wood, in which the bird stayed faithful to all morning.

Birding a patch is a funny old game at times, prior to this autumn I had only ever seen one Pied Fly in over five years of slog around the Flats - I've now found two birds in a space of eight days!

This was Wanstead's third Pied Flycatcher of the autumn, which surely cements its place as one of the best sites in London to catch up with this passage favourite? I also had Whinchat, Tree Pipit, 3 Spotted Flycatchers and a finally Yellow Wagtail (96), although Common Redstart still continues to elude me...

Autumn, London, Wanstead
