An ornithological sensation: Red-breasted flycatcher in Malvik!

The most unexpected bird to appear in my garden was an adult male red-breasted flycatcher (dvergfluesnapper) on 25th May 1995, found unfortunately dead on the door step :(
This is still the only sighting inland in the old Sør-Trøndelag county and the only spring sighting in Trøndelag!
I must admit that I thought it was a robin (rødstrupe)…it was my wife Eileen that said “that’s no robin” :)
