Pied Flycatcher and Tawny Owl

I revisited Yarner Wood in Dartmoor this Easter weekend, looking to photograph three species, a Pied Flycatcher, a Wood Warbler and a Redstart. As you can see I dipped on the last two but I managed to grab an average image of the Pied Fly and a mediocre shot of a Tawny Owl. I found the photography difficult as we arrived midday with high sun and strong shadow.


  1. I love Yarner Wood,a place we both think is set back in time,including it's Wild life.
    I see you both nailed the pied Flycatcher and the Tawny Owl,which i my opinion you have done spot on.
    Great looking Images,as usual.

  2. Love the coloring on that Owl! Still nice shots.

  3. Well done ! I have failed miserably on Pied Fly on previous trips to the UK

  4. Mediocre, average, I would have been very happy to get those shots.

  5. Hi Dude,

    Nice post! The pied flycatcher is a small flycatching bird, slightly smaller than a house sparrow. The male is mostly black on the upperparts and white underneath, with a bold white patch on the folded wing. Thanks for sharing it.....
