Whilst trying to relocate the Great Skua on Stewartby Lake, Tony Donnelly then discovered a juvenile NORTHERN GANNET - this bird too spending about two hours in the county.
On Thursday (16 October), Steve Blain relocated the Radwell DOTTEREL in fields between Biggleswade and Sandy after it had been photographed Wednesday evening at Gypsy Lane East with the Golden Plover flock.
Lastly, Jon Palmer located the Streatley GREAT GREY SHRIKE for its 4th consecutive winter - the bird roosting in the hedgerow just east of the Swiss Cottage on the Icknield Way. Like in previous years, best looked for two hours after dawn.
No sign of the Great Grey Shrike when I visited Friday but 6 CORN BUNTINGS were of note
