The temperature plummeted this morning as a cold front moved in, replacing the unseasonally warm summer weather. But, before it arrived there was a gorgeous summer sunrise at 04:30.
In the video below a pied flycatcher (svarthvit fluesnapper) can be heard singing.
There was a big arrival of African migrants in the night and this morning I registered my first pied flycatcher (svarthvit fluesnapper) singing in the garden, a group of 5 swallows (låvesvale) hunting insects and a willow warbler singing and flycatching!
Last year was the first year with no breeding pied flycatchers (svart-hvit fluesnapper) here :(
Therefore, it was extra special to find a male catching flies in the garden just now, right on cue and all the way from Africa :)
He wasn’t singing, maybe worn out after the journey…
