A presumed adult, putatively this species, was watched drifting out of St. Catherine's Valley, Marshfield on May 26th. The bird was first seen around 06:00 at a height of about 25 metres over the track between Halldoor Lane and Nailey Farm at approximately ST: 776 720 south-west of Marshfield. It was last seen leaving the valley heading in a generally north-north-westerly direction towards West Littleton.
