Hampshire tick! 201 species in total

Red hot news this morning of a confiding Hampshire tick near Titchfield - but I couldn't get into the field until mid afternoon - would it stay?

YES! After a windy ride to the coast, and meeting up with my 'support crew' once more, I walked the 3/4 mile west along Brownwich cliffs, to be rewarded with point blank views of a really crippling Lapland Bunting. Stunning stuff - a real Hampshire blocker nailed, and an unexpected eZCEYL species!
