Not a Nightingale, I'm afraid, but a Spotted Flycatcher - and a very nice shot of it too.

Yes Agree with Jack, Spotted Flycatcher....The stripes on the head give it away.

And the pale feather fringes. Nightingale is an altogether plainer - and more rufous - bird.

Thank you everyone. That is definitely a majority decision. A spotted flycatcher it. I am grateful for your help.
