A Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata) with a rather exotic moth(poor thing!). The breeding pair of Flycatchers in our garden are now very busy feeding their chicks - I think there could be 3 or 4 - can only just see the tips of their beaks. The parents are incredible hunters, sitting motionless on a perch and scanning for bugs, then flying off to grab their prey, with a resounding click. Once they have a beak full they visit the nest to feed the chicks.
