Pied Flycatcher today in Regent's Park.

Also I heard something with quite an unfamiliar call, loud and soft. Maybe a Crossbill, I don't know.

White-fronted Goose today, at the Diana Memorial, Hyde Park. I'm struggling to find a fieldfare.

Grasshopper Warbler yesterday, again at Darland's Lake. I'm not that confident that I had ever actually seen one before, anywhere. I have a record from when I was at school, but I'm not sure how reliable that was. And if indeed it was the first that I have ever seen, that puts me in what must be the very unusual position (for a British birder at any rate) of having seen MIddendorff's and Long-billed Grasshopper Warblers before Common Grasshopper Warbler.

Not Pallas' ?
Nope. I was once in the Altai mountains at what would have been the right time of year, but probably not the right habitat. And I see there are plenty of winter records from South-east Asia, but I've never connected with it there and it's probably not very conspicuous in winter.
