7 september. Breaking news of a male Pallid Harrier in Camebridgeshire meant a very sudden change of plans. A slightly nervous few hours,and the ineviteable standing in the wrong place, looking the wrong way etc eventually came good as a distant Grey blob on the ground.lifted into the air, turning into a stunning, near adult, male Pallid Harrier, gracefully quartering the fields in front of us !!! Not a lifer, as I had enjoyed close views of the juvenile Pallid Harrier in Norfolk at Winterton - but a very nice surprise to turn up on the doorstep.
