Immature on and around farm buildings at Portobello Farm, Sutton this morning, 09:45-11:30. Grid reference TL209473.

As he only lives about one mile away, Steve came along and captured some images here: 

We spoke to the farmer, Mr Reams, who was delighted with the bird and does not have a problem with people visiting. There is a parking space at TL211471. Please respect privacy, footpaths, etc, etc...
