'Found it just half a mile from the house yesterday. The one time I didn't have a camera! I got this by holding my phone up to my bins!! Edited and unedited attached, both are poor quality but OK if viewed on a small screen like a phone and a good local bird. It's the earliest ever for Cambourne I believe. The other one I saw here I even managed to get (distantly at more than a half a mile) on the house list.' JH
