New scientific name

I think it is now Saxicola rubicola.

If that is so, then iSpot

If that is so, then iSpot needs to update its database and it becomes harder to get up-to-date identifications if they are foreever being changed. Anyway, its a fun little bird that loves to pose and I am just hoping that the 'Dartford Warblers' come in soon, so that I can watch these two breeds hunt insects together.

Scientific names!!!

I find them a trial even though they are supposed to be uncontroversial! My comment was for info really, I was just pointing out what I'd read on previous iSpot obs of this lovely bird.
You are so lucky to be able to see Dartford Warblers in the same view. As you say this is such a lovely bird, I hope you continue to enjoy many hours of delightful observations.
