Montagu's Harrier seen near Tilsbury, SPTA. Only glimpsed from moving vehicle. Grey Wagtails on WDC. Sometimes it's good to get out of Northern Ireland!

Great sighting and one for Andrew's records. New Helmand birding blog in the offing?

To be more accurate, the location was between Sheraton & Tilshead (not Tilsbury), on SPTA, heading to West Down Camp. It was a female, clearly distinguishable by the white rump markings. Would have loved to have got my driver to pull over, so I could have spent more time observing, but HICON called!

Helmand, unfortunately not, I'm with 19X. Redundancy is looking more prominent, unless I can get a job with 38X.
