Subspecies: [torquilla by location]
Unexpected, just passing through on my way to an errand in central Copenhagen. Stopped when a large greenish looking dragonfly crossed the road. Walked the stretch to find it again. A man, Jakob Strand, then walks by asking if I'm the one who just reported a wryneck half an hour again, right at this spot. I told him no, and kept searching for the dragonfly, without luck. Then I doubled back in his direction to give the bird a chance. And he stood there a hundred meters further ahead, and said he had just seen it. And I get off the bike, and first point the camera, have no binoculars, toward a bird on top of a bare bush, a Spotted Flycatcher, and then at another bird in another bush and that was it! Always a nice bird to see, hoping for better looks and photos the next time.
