On and by road to Farnborough 500m or so west of the village. I initially only saw a white "bird"flushed by an on-coming car. I turned around and re found the "bird" still by the road side. Stopped the car and looking though my windscreen with my bins I couldn't believe I was looking at a GWE! As cars passed by it just flew up and re-landed on the road. Did this several times. I managed a few record shots with my phone. Bizzare record!
