Spotted Fly in the garden

Juvvy Spotted Flycatcher - garden bird no.112

Like Lesser Whitethorat last month, not one, but two Spot Flys winged there way through my garden this evening and on to my garden list. They were accompanied by a single Willow Warbler. They didn't spend long around the gardens before moving down the line of Elms by the houses. In the hour or so I was watching them they were briefly joined by the Willow Warbler, a Chiffchaff and two Reed Warblers. The two Phylloscs are certainly not local, but the Reedies could be simply from the surrounding dykes.
