Spotted Flycatchers breed successfully
Two pairs of Spotted Flycatchers bred successfully in Gibraltar. One was located at the Trafalgar Cemetery, where they raised two young, while the other pair bred near the Theatre area of the Botanic Gardens and were seen throughout the last few weeks feeding just one chick, but a few days ago two were seen together.
The chick at the Botanic Gardens was photographed by our keen GONHS member and photographer Franz Josef Odinius, who captured a good still of the chick perched on the monument of Molly Bloom.
Another keen member, Yvonne Henwood saw the two chicks being fed in the Trafalgar Cemetery where they are now flying successfully and are nearly ready to depart south to their wintering quarters in Africa.
