For a bird that will probably not even be accepted as a true vagrant and so not onto the British List i feel we have had more than enough photographs of it published on these sightings pages. So, in future, only truly exceptional pictures of this bird will be published. (Tony Mills).

Croft Pascoe: 2 Spotted Flycatcher, 2 Cuckoo, 1 Grasshopper Warbler and 1 Blackcap (heard calling). (J St Ledger, C Benton)
