20170615 Spotted Flycatcher Glandford

Spotted Flycatcher
Pair nested near the Ford this year in ivy clad tree.
Feeding young in the nest on 15th but by the 21st there was no sign of the family.
Appear to be very thin on the ground this year in North Norfolk and going the same way as Turtle Dove and Nightingale...??
Last summer we came across Spot Fly family of 3 fledglings on the Blickling Hall Estate.
