Mystery Bird At Northam

16 May 2010, 06:00

A bird of prey's turned up at Northam Burrows - but no-one knows what species it is.

Its unusual colours and features mean it could be a cross breed, but no-one's been able to come up with an answer yet, including the Burrows ranger, the Devon Bird Watching and Preservation Society and local wildlife artists.

It's also thought the bird could belong to someone, as it looks like has been ringed and has been happy to pose for pictures!
