NEW CATTLE EGRET IN HAMPSHIRE

A CATTLE EGRET was found in Selborne late yesterday afternoon. It is in a small field with a few horses and sheep on the left hand side at the end of a narrow road at SU755344. There is only parking for two cars at most. You will probably need to park and walk down the footpath to the left (west) towards Selborne for 100 yards and look in over the gate into the field on the left, although it may also be viewable over the gate just to the left of the cottage where you park. The farmer has said there is a second bird with cattle at SU771350 but that was not located today.

Another item of news is that a PALLAS'S LEAF WARBLER was trapped and photographed in a garden in the north of the county today. It was only seen by the ringer and his neighbour and is not available for twitching (John Clark)
