MEGA! ACADIAN FLYCATCHER Probable in Kent!!!

A probable Acadian Flycatcher has been found in a garden of South View, along road to lighthouse at Dungeness, Kent by Martin Casemore!

Lots of discussion around ID, but seems to be swinging towards 'Acadian'. If confirmed as Acadian, this will be a first for Britain and 'only the second for the Western Palearctic following one found dead in Iceland in 1967'!!!

Discussion on Birdforum HERE with links to pictures.
