Low Barns Nature Reserve

On Sunday, we went to Low Barns Nature Reserve in County Durham. At least two male Pied Flycatchers were singing and giving excellent views from the path along the north side of the lake. Unfortunately they didn't sit perched for very long so the wideo clips are very short. Whilst we stood watching the Pied Flycatchers, a Spotted Flycatcher was also seen catching insects.

During our visit we also saw Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Reed Bunting, Cormorant, Mallard, Nuthatch, Tufted Duck, Great-crested Grebe, Mute Swan, Moorhen, Oystercatchers, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Blackcap, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Robin, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Jay, Jackdaw and Common Buzzard.

The butterflies seen were Orange Tip, Speckled Wood, Small White and Large White.
