Description:

Arrive mid-September. Very often seen perching on fence (as in first two photos) or on low tree-branches - darting off to chase insects, then returning to perch. In the third photo it has quite a large insect in its beak. I very rarely see more than one at a time, though when I go for a walk I can see that there are several about - maybe they parcel out the territory between them.
