A ring-tail Montagu's harrier flew past my house yesterday... that was nice.
My bird of the year so far.
This is the third one from the garden in the last four years! A quite remarkable set of records seeing that Monty's are a bit of a rare up here. (I must admit that I didn't see the last one. I was sitting in an airport lounge as my wife watched one from the kitchen window).
A stunning male summer plumaged snow bunting last Wednesday was extraordinarily late and a pair of corn buntings cling on in the patch. Once common, but now down to the last pair.
Three in this last week put me on to a tidy 119 for the year and 76.48%.
