Its the real deal, honey !
Speeton, September 17th 2008
A great find by Keith Clarkson, showed well in flight when an organised flush took place mid afternoon. The bird was then left in peace to rest and feed.
The next day was however a different story, despite messages saying no access and please await permission from the land owner for an organised flush to be arranged a number of birders entered the private fields and booted the bird several times causing it to abandon its favoured areas and to fly across three large fields and to be lost.
I have searched the area it flew to several times since but no sign of the bird, techinally when it landed in the new area it was within the Buckton recording area.
