Abstract: Although large influxes (with up to 800+) of the Spotted Flycatcher Muscicapa striata have been recorded occasionally in autumn, only up to 100+ had been previously recorded for any one locality in any single day in spring. An unusually large influx occurred on 15th May 1977. The fall was mainly concentrated on the south south-east of Malta where 200+ were counted at Wied Znuber (Hal Far) and 200+ further inland at Marsa, both in the morning. During the same period only 30 + were counted at Xemxija while in Gozo no unusually larger numbers were noted.
