    Well spotted Steve! This would be the second reported Arctic roll to get away this winter in Cornwall.

    REPLY: We recieved this unconfirmed report after the event and tried to get confirmation of its identity before puting the news out. The bird was not seen again and the finder did not want to disclose where her garden was.
