The Red-breasted Flycatcher breeds in central and eastern Europe and across Russia to Siberia. It winters in the Indian sub-continent and south-east Asia so this bird is a passage migrant on its way to its wintering grounds via Dubai.

It breeds in forest and woodland and on passage is found anywhere with trees.

The male has a reddish-orange throat while the female and second-year male have a buffish-white throat.
