Montagu's Harrier, Champion Moor, July 2012

An excellent find for Graham and Russell on their quest to twitch a feral
Duck. A routine scan of Champion Moor produced brief, distant views, of
a Harrier...
After a frustrating couple of hours the bird showed itself well enough and the
news was duly texted out. I saw the bird myself on it's first day (11th) at a
range of one kilometre and returned at the weekend for better views.

It flew that way!

To my knowledge, this is the first record in East Lanc's and a very popular bird it
proved to be.
