Best looking British breeder? - A poll

A quick poll from NGB, where members could add their own suggestions. Criteria - a species that has bred in Britain in recent history.

Montagu's Harrier 9
Dotterel 8
Golden Oriole 4
Blue Tit 3
Nightjar 2
Black-necked Grebe 2
Black-throated Diver 2
Honey Buzzard 2
Ruff 2
Arctic Skua 2
Red-necked Phalarope 2
Bee Eater 2
Common Crane 2
Firecrest 1
Garden Warbler 1
Roseate Tern                       1

I was surprised with the diversity of species, and found that without a bird guide to flick through, I kept bettering my own suggestions the more I thought about it!
