    Comments: Seen briefly head & tail view in willows over pond opposite the railings on gravel path closest to carpark area. This bird has been identified as a LEFL but there have been 3 species of empidonax flycatcher in this area recently. I think this was a WIFL because of the lack of eyering, orange lower mandible, peaked greyish head, yellowish wash on belly, lighter on breast & throat. The eye appeared to be in a hollow - very dark. This was definitely not PSFL (teardrop eyering) nor HAFL (eyering, unusual habitat, more grey look). Alas no pics!

    Comments: Best seen by walking around the closest golf hole to the carpark and accessing the first break in the shrubbery surrounding the pond.
    The bird was foraging along the waterline among the broken twigs & branches on both sides of the pond. Not too skittish. Large warbler, brownish back, streaked breast, prominent yellowish brown eyebrow. Frequent vocalizations - see Badke audio.
