TAIGA FLYCATCHER first for West Cornwall
Lisa Williams photographed this TAIGA FLYCATCHER at Tregeseal, adjacent to St Just, in West Cornwall late afternoon on 6 November. The bird was showing very well but was sadly seen by just Lisa and the finder Phil Clarke. A few locals were informed but the bird disappeared on the clear weather overnight (see more at http://www.swopticsphoto.com/2009/11/first-for-cornwall-has-sting-in-taiga.html
In October, a TAIGA FLYCATCHER was also seen on Shetland, moving from Fetlar to Yell.
