Tim writes: my sister moved to Snowdonia last year and invited me across to stay.  I was surprised and delighted to find she had both Pied Flycatchers and Redstarts as garden birds.  The Pied Flycatchers were particularly showy and there was lots of light too as the leaves had not yet opened to block the light.  My usual problem with photographing Pied Flycatchers is that they perch among branches creating a cluttered photograph.  But I had plenty of time to sit and wait for this one to perch in a nice open spot with a clear background.
