A rare visitor to Britain from a range extending from south-central France into Asia Minor, one was at Skomer on 18 September 1974 (M. de la Brooke) and another at the same place on 2-7 July 1993 (C. Keighley et al.), which may have been the bird seen previously at Trwyn Cynddeiriog, near St Davids, on 24 June 1993 (E. and D. Liddel).
