Description:

We braved huge lorries thundering by inches from us, cynical as well as interested motorists, anxious prams etc, a lot of general bemusement.

What a super bird and what a strange place to find it!! The key features to tell it from Icterine are not visible, unfortunately, but still good to see.

Edit: The extra pictures are better and one seems to show the shorter primary projection of Melodious. Thanks for putting them up.

a final, slightly blurred picture from the rear which may or may not help

of course, if you can accept it's the same bird (you'll recognise the leaves), there are plenty of much better pictures on http://londonbirders.wikia.com/wiki/LatestNews under Wed 16th, and I think on Birdguides
