We reported in our 2011 Rare and Scarce Bird Report that up until 2011 there had been 8 official county records and anotherÂ one on theÂ Hayle Estuary in 2007 was pending acceptance. Well after contacting the finders and encouraging them to submit the record, the bird was accepted by the BBRC! Well done to Nick Bond and the gang for persevering! That brings the countyÂ total for this speciesÂ to 11 to the end of 2011.
