Patch tick

An afternoon check of some of the most likely areas for passerines at Canons Farm and Banstead Woods revealed this obliging Spotted Flycatcher which was persistent on chasing something that looked like an immature Willow Warbler away every time it appeared, before I could properly ID it. My 84th bird for the patch and not a very common bird locally but many probably go through undetected.
