Pied Flycatchers 08 June 2011

I was shown this nest hole on 23rd April as the male displayed flashing his white wing-bars and singing around the hole in an oak about a metre from the ground. It didn’t look a particularly safe place to nest but a few days later there was a complete nest inside constructed from dead grass stems and oak leaves which is typical of a pied flycatcher.
