...And yet another ASIATIC BROWN FLYCATCHER...

Following on from the SWAINSON'S THRUSH on Fair Isle of last week, today saw more mega's on Shetland today - in the form of the first PALLAS'S GRASSHOPPER WARBLER of the autumn on Fair Isle and an ASIATIC BROWN FLYCATCHER at Sumburgh Head (south Shetland Mainland). The latter was discovered by the foursome of the moment - including one hailing from Ireland. Almost immediately after arriving on Shetland they stumbled upon a RIVER WARBLER at Quendale Mill..........

Addendum: Photographs subsequently appeared of the ''Brown Flycatcher''. It was actually a misidetified first-winter SPOTTED FLYCATCHER........
