WHITE-COLLARED FLYCATCHER on Lewis
This very elusive first-summer male WHITE-COLLARED FLYCATCHER was found by chance yesterday, as it sallied out close to the road junction in a small conifer plantation near Stornoway, Lewis (Outer Hebrides). It was seen by just four people - including Ben Steel (the finder) and Martin Scott, who obtained these record shots above. There is just one previous spring record from the region - a male on St Kilda on 24 May 1992 (Tim Dix).
