Pied Flycatcher (Male)
Alan Manouch (May)
These are two pictures are of Pied Flycatchers (this one is the male) whichÃ.Â I took outside the Bar at Plas y Brenin.
I had just spentÃ.Â two hours in Bryn Engan WoodsÃ.Â patiently watching a nesting box and only catching a fleeting glimpse of a female.
After deciding that enough was enough I came back to 'The Brenin' for a cup of tea before starting work. As IÃ.Â sat outside on the balcony, this pair were displaying around the trees and nesting box right opposite the balcony. I simply had to lift up the camera and shoot without even moving from my seat.
Bryn Engan woods (at the bottom of Plas y brenin 's garden) is full of nesting boxes and has long been known as a prime breeding area for these birds.
