uncommon

Think there are also sorts of things afoot (BTO, RSPB etc.)to try to discover why the rapid decrease... Really good spot though!

Feel free to look at my ongoing (hopefully improving) collection of pictures on Flickr:

decline

I was so happy to spot this little guy and lucky! you are both right it really is sad that their numbers are declining so rapidly. I know they are being hunted whilst migrating which must have a big impact on their number.
Thank you for link scarpermac will have a nose through : )
