I usually have either a Wattlebird, Sparrow or Willie Wagtail come by my window at work each afternoon to clean the various insects from the spider webs. This afternoon a female Restless Flycatcher decided to come along and clean the entire length of the window. It seemed pretty undeterred by my presence, right up until the point where I pull out my phone to take a picture (at a range of about 70cm).  It was actively calling as it moved down the window and then sat in a nearby tree calling for about 3-4 minutes before heading towards Callum Brae.
