Female Pied Flycatcher

The mate of the male posted last week. Today seen entering the nestbox.

Not such a great picture but shows her brown and white appearance. She has a bold white patch on each closed wing. Admittedly this might sound like the description of a female Chaffinch, but this small image maybe captures the typical flycatcher shape, 'sweet' face and beak. Noticed the ring?
