Abstract: The Rufous Nightingale Luscinia megarhynchos is a common passage migrant in Malta from mid-March to midMay, with a few birds until late May and from mid-August to mid-October. Occasional single birds have also been recorded in June at Buskett (Sultana & Gauci 1982). There are no documented breeding records of the Rufous Nightingale in Malta. Ardoino ( 1928) and Despott ( 1932) stated that it bred but did not mention any breeding records.
