A female spotted flycatcher just outside Swettenham village this afternoon. Just near a ford that runs over the road.
I had identified this spot as a good spot for a flycatcher and when i returned to look, it was the first bird i saw!
I suspect there may be more than just one here, but it was all i saw this evening around 8.45-9.10pm.

Hi Simon, were you "in the group with Rob" at Higher Poynton?

The Rostherne bird only needs to fly north a couple of hundred metres to make it over the border...

Had super views of the Poynton Cattle Egret this lunchtime - well worth the visit.
