Our Nest Record Scheme (NRS) project officer, Rory Poulter, reminds me that
we only have four records of this species in the NRS.  More records (of this
and all other species) would be very welcome, in order to build up a
detailed understanding of their breeding biology and thus a better
understanding of their conservation needs.  If you (or anyone else) would
like info about the NRS, please let me know.

Cheers,  Hugo.
