G'day all

Great views of a Spotted Harrier yesterday.  It was in the Hamilton Parklands
reserve.  This is a large area of remnant native grassland on the northern
outskirts of the city.  The harrier was seen soaring low over the grass on
several occasions and perched in a dead tree once.

I have a record of on near Lake Linlithgow in May 1992 and another near Lake
Bolac in April 2002.  David Cameron reported two near Dunkeld recently.
