A spotted flycatcher (Muscicapa striata) was spotted (excuse the pun!) recently from the footpath below the church in Weobley. This little songbird is on the RSPB’s Red List of Birds of Conservation Concern. Between 1967 and 2012, the population dropped by 89%, and a reduction in insect availability could be a reason for this decline.

These charismatic birds perch on branches, dash out to catch flying insects before returning to the same spot. It’s great that we have them on site, and please get in touch if you spot any around the farm on your walks. We do an annual bird survey of the site, so all Red List bird species are great to add to the list. Email: contact@thronefarm.co.uk
