North Lobb

Rumours at the Devon Birds indoor meeting last night in Barnstaple of a very unusual sighting of a Great Bustard seen at North Lobb last Sunday.

Decided to check it out & by chance met the person who had seen it who lives at Lobb & who has just returned from a birding trip in Hungary.

When he spotted it on Sunday he could not believe it either!

Unfortunately, it did not materialise for me but then again 3 days have elapsed since it was last seen & have not recently returned from Hungary!

Bret informed me that several Great Bustards have recently dispersed from Salisbury Plain where they were introduced & he is very familiar with the species.
