Adult male. Hejresøen. Discovered by John Larsen this morning.
Rather actively singing when I was there during the afternoon, but not very cooperative visually. Only seen briefly when flying from one spot to another.
This song is the typical male song, indicating that it was very keen on finding a mate. Will be interesting to see if it is still there tomorrow after a whole day without a female response.
Biggest rarity in my time on Amager, I think, which was also indicated by the large number of birders present during my stay.

Adult male. Same as 3426.
Was calling from the same spot as the day before, why I positioned myself hoping it would eventually move around the same way. And it did. Just that in that exact moment when it passed by, I was reviewing photos of overflying swifts, why I got on the bird a second too late, thus the poor result. After that it stayed hidden and I left. It was seen the next day too with good photos taken, just not by me.
