Spotted Flycatcher

While in Cork last week I visited Mizen Head on 21st & 22nd September.  There was one Hudsonian Whimbrel there which was found on the 20th, and I managed to re-find it on the Wednesday 21st.  But I could not get close enough to get any pics, the bird was very wary and alert.  This was only the third Irish record of this North American form of Whimbrel in Ireland.  Also at Mizen was one Semi-palmated Sandpiper, two Whinchats and a Spotted Flycatcher as seen below.
