I spent late afternoon yesterday up on Dartmoor looking for a reported juvenile Lammergeier a first for England as the bird was found a few days ago in South Wales making it the first for Britain but as with everyone else there I had no luck , but the bird was seen earlier in the day by local birder John Gale ( Lucky sod ) ! so my mate Brian Heasman and myself went up again today for another look , we went to the Warren House area where most of the other 50+ birders had decided to assemble .
Again there was no sign of the bird in poor weather , but there was a few birds seen with a few Whinchat , a male and female Common Cuckoo , a distant Ring Ouzel , a male Northern Wheatear and a very distant Red Kite , Dartmoor is a vast area so the bird could be anywhere just waiting to be found again !!!!!!!
