Where to see them
Found in mature woodlands mainly to the west of the UK, not in N Ireland. The valleys and hillsides of Wales are a good place to look for breeding birds in summer and the RSPB's Nagshead reserve has a good population. You may also see it in spring and autumn at coastal migration watchpoints.
When to see them
Late April to September
What they eat
Insects and caterpillars; fruit and seeds in late summer and on migration.
