Recordist's Note: "A mere fragment of song. Sprossers, as well as Nightingales, do come and sing here in winter (J.G. Williams) and on 11th December I shot one and identified it by the wing formula, but it is not clear whether this is the bird recorded, hence the query. I seem to have been satisfied at the time. Unlike the Nightingales, the Sprosser never seemed to 'get going' in their songs here. More data needed."
