Is this from a nest, David?

Is this from a nest, David? If so, it would be only the second I know of on the mainland as opposed to the Scillies. There was a report from London in BWARS a couple of years ago.

from a nest

I didn't find the nest, although given the location I have no reason to suppose it wasn't nesting there.

Interesting - I will pass

Interesting - I will pass that on. We had one in Orkney some years ago - but that arrived in a bag of CI lettuces!
