This individual was
photographed late evening over Maidenhead, Berkshire just before it drifted into
Bucks.  It had been seen in the Maidenhead area since 15th April but it is presumably
the same bird that was seen briefly at Little Marlow Gravel pit on 16th and at Berghers
Hill a week earlier still (all within a few miles).  This was part of an influx of
this species into the country with birds also seen at Hampstead Heath, Devon, Cheshire,
Kent and elsewhere.  This species had not previously been recorded in the county.
