Rarities abound.......

At Broom GP this evening, Mark Thomas located a ROSEATE TERN briefly before it flew off east, and watched a ROUGH-LEGGED BUZZARD fly over.

In the south of the county, Rob Dazley, Lol & Bob had a singing male WOOD WARBLER briefly in Dunstable and Andy White a male BLACK REDSTART at 57 Ravensbank in Stopsley (Luton).

Lots of WHEATEARS were grounded, including 15 on Blows Downs (RD) and 5 at Ridgeway Wood (DJO)
