PALLID HARRIER in Bedfordshire - first county record

Mark Wark and Laura Stevens have just seen a juvenile PALLID HARRIER fly south-west over the road between Little Barford power station and Tempsford. 08:45 It was last seen heading towards the Roxton area and the A1. Roughly in this grid square - TL1755. An amazing Beds first! (per Steve Blain)

What was presumably the same bird was seen earlier by Stuart Elsom in Cambridgeshire
