Cors Caron - mixed feeding flock

 This morning I saw a small fledgling on the fence on the boardwalk at Cors Caron. It was a Pied Flycatcher. I then saw both adults flying on and off the fence. I could hear other fledglings calling all around and when trying to get on them with bins I found a variety of other birds, a family of Blue Tits, a Great Tit, a Willow Tit, a Garden Warbler and a Willow Warbler all foraging together. I've never seen a fledgling Pied Fly before, interesting to see how well defined the wing pattern is even on what must be its first feathers. Other birds - three Whinchats and two unseen Groppers.
