A very rare vagrant to the UK with one historical record in the London Area.

Accepted records (1)Edit

  • 1858: Stratford (Essex), one shot at Temple Mill Marshes on the east side of the River Lea on October 19th (Birds of Essex, Wood 2007)

Hudson (1898) relays the account stating that "a working man came full of excitement ... to say that he had just seen a strange bird, looking like a piece of whity-brown paper blowing about on the marsh; whereupon the late Mr. George Beresford took down his gun, went out, and secured the wanderer" (Birds of Essex, Wood 2007).
