There was the only bird. I shot it in different weather conditions. At first the weather was good than suddelly the fog came. Last 2 pics were made in the fog. I'll add more pics tomorrow when I will be able to get to my computer.

and few more pics of this specimen from the same place

Despite your earlier assurances to the contrary, there are clearly two different species here.

1 & 6-14 Dark-sided Flycatcher
2-5 Asian Brown Flycatcher

The Dark-sided has a smaller, shorter bill with a more restricted base, a smaller, more domed head and a longer pp. In addition you can see the more solidly dark breast sides with more defined streaks towards the centre of the breast and dark centres to the utc's. Further, the pale lores are indistinct; note on the Brown they are solid and extend to the forehead.

Hello Grahame,

than probably I didn't noticed that there were two of them when I was changing the card. Can they be seen together at the same place?

Hello once again, jusk looked through tonns of pics of both species. You are right! There are two different species on the pics. Thank you very much! It is amasing but I still don't understand how they managed to change each other in this place during those few seconds when I was changing the memory card :)
