An Eastern Crowned Warbler Phylloscopus coronatus in Finland in the second half of October 2004 was discovered on the same day as a Rufous-tailed Robin Luscinia sibilans on Fair Isle, Shetland, and eight days after a Chestnut-eared Bunting Emberiza fucata, also on Fair Isle.The two previous Western Palearctic records of Eastern Crowned Warbler were both more than two weeks earlier.For many active birders in Britain, some of the most exciting days of the year are those between early September and mid November when conditions suggest that there may be an arrival of migrants on the east coast.
