Flycatcher - UK?

Saw this when out on the North Downs (South East UK) today.
I'm really not too sure what it is. My instincts tell me it may be a flycatcher of one kind or another, but I'm really not sure and more than happy to be corrected.
The terrain was downland - grass, heath, pasture - that kind of thing.
I'd be really grateful if anyone could put me straight on what it is.
