That's an interesting one, Richard, but I have come to the conclusion
that a lot of odd birds turn up at Banyule Flats. Perhaps because there
are birdwatchers about who actually notice them? Related to the
phenomenen of rare birds appearing at weekends?
Anyway, some years ago in spring, I once saw a Masked Woodswallow over
Studley Park in Kew.
