Red-breasted Flycatcher at Porthgwarra

This first year Red-breasted Flycatcher was photo'd today between the toilet block and doctor's garden at Porthgwarra. The species is an annual but scarce passage migrant through Cornwall with the bulk of records recorded in October.  Porthgwarra is by far the most popular site for the species and the elm trees behind the toilet block (Men's side) seem to be particularly attractive!
