Never say never Nige ! however, I think we stand more chance of the Pallid Harrier or even Bearded Vulture !! - unless you've already seen the PH when it was in the NW, was it 2017 ?

I did say "almost a zero chance" It has been my intention to go across to the site where they are often seen ... one of these days ... if I can remember which reserve.
You've got a good memory, I couldn't have said the PH was here in 2017. Sadly, it was up on the moors and at that time I would have never have made it due to circulation problems in my leg seriously inhibiting my ability to get up inclines. Fortunately, that problem has been completely sorted and I can zip up hills like a mountain goat again but I'm still waiting for the Harrier to come back!

Now young man........ some of us "elders" can only dream now of zipping up any hill LOL I just had a reminder today when I reached my 65th birthday ! I did manage a 5 mile undulating walk to the village and back so not quite ready for my Zimmer frame yet ;) As for the PH, I wonder if and when we will see it again so we'll have to make do with the Marsh Harriers at LM for the time being once lockdown allows a return.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
