*Continuing rarity. A handful of people were on site upon our arrival, a while after fog apparently re-covered the area, and nobody was seeing the bird. As we approached the small group of people camped out under a large elm where it had been seen, we were looking in lower bushes on the field edges and in the middle of the field. There was a white spot visible naked eye in the comped of bushes in the "middle" of the north field, and upon examination this turned out to be the FTFL, and it shortly flew a short distance and buried itself on the bushes. We got closer to the bush and saw the Flycatcher briefly 2-3 more times along with most of the birders who were already there. It then did not show itself for the rest of our stay (unsurprisingly given how dark and chilly it had become thanks to the fog and the late hour). Presumably was roosting either in that bush, or perhaps the nearby marsh or marsh edge (at least 3 EAPH flew out of the large bush complex and into the phragmites marsh, or at least the edge of he marsh).
