Posting for Dave Okines whose reply to his post failed.

Correct the bird seen was a Lark Sparrow not a Lark Bunting. The report 
should read.

a Lark Sparrow was seen and photographed near the first cottage on
the far side of the harbour   early yesterday afternoon. It was seen for
about two hours but it then dissappeared and was not seen again, it has 
looked for today several times but it could not be relocated.
