Chris Pontin discovered and photographed a juvenile NORTHERN WHEATEAR on the access road to Hill Farm, Chesham, on Thursday evening - the first record in the Amersham Recording Area for many years (and the 101st species this year). Unfortunately I was away in Northern Scotland but there was no sign of it there yesterday morning when I searched.

A single male YELLOWHAMMER was singing from the hedgerow opposite the chicken pen, with 1-2 RED KITES, a pair of Collared Doves and at least 5 COMMA butterflies noted (see Stuart Read's image above)
