1 Pallid Harrier Circus macrourus - juvenile - 1st record for Madeira Island!
The Pallid Harrier was firstly recorded by Ralph Hobbs (UK) on Tuesday the 24th of June but there was a bit of doubts on its identification. On Saturday Hugo Romano and a group of UK birdwatchers identified it as a Pallid Harrier. On the last week of April there was a report of this species, also a juvenile, in Porto Santo Island by Riccardo Del Togno from Italy.
