First for Lundy

18 Oct – One was seen briefly between the Beach Road and the 'Goat Path' (Martin Elcoate). Seen in rapidly deteriorating weather conditions, the bird could not be relocated. Fortunately, some snatched photos, followed by Martin’s doggedly patient and forensic marshalling of all the evidence, ultimately led to the clinching of a superb first for the island. Record accepted by BBRC.
