I visited Providence this morning (6 February 2016) and found a Western Marsh Harrier. SBRC has accepted just 3 previous records, including a specimen record from 1888, one in 1978 and one in 1994. The bird was actively hunting, possibly for lizards. It buzzed a Yellow Bittern a couple of times, the latter wisely adopting the bittern's "brace position" with bill pointed upward at the harrier, which thought better of things. Even the Grey Herons looked a bit wary, Cattle Egrets kept their distance and the 16 Garganey here one week ago - and probably the only birds present to have come across a Marsh Harrier previously - had completely vanished.
