This superb male was found on the southern part of Langley Park by Robin Dryden (at 13:50), who was walking in the park on his lunch break from work. It was observed by a steady stream of birders during the afternoon and evening of 1st May and was reported as singing on the following day. This is a major rarity in the county.
