My rarity
.... is becoming more regular! I saw one during the Christmas holidays, which was the first for a few months, now here was one at the beginning of February.

Until a few years ago I'd only seen one in the area and that was up in the Glens. To get one onto my Year List, I had to go to the Glasgow Edinburgh area on my way down into England/Wales.

I guess it won't be long until they're making daily visits?
