It came as a big shock coming across this when checking the Greenshank at the pools.

Got To Be One In Gwent Somewhere.

Checked out Goldcliff Pools this morning.A couple of Little Stints and a Curlew Sand were the best.Got home and everyone was having a lie in.A quick cup of coffee was had and then i headed down to Sker Point for the Lapland Bunting for a few Photos seeing that it has been showing well.Only wish the Bobolink showed like this last week.

Beautiful Bobolink

Shot down to Eggy Nunn straight after work for a beautiful Bobolink.After a few flight views it gave its self up almost and showed reasonably well shuffling through the long grass.The best was yet to come as it hopped up on some type of weed and showed in full view for about 30 seconds.No pictures as i was more concerned in seeing it well.

No Show Shrike

A couple of us decided to head down Sunday morning for the Shrike in Hampshire.Managed to get to Reading before needing a toilet break.News came through on the pager the shrike was not showing.Hmm what to do now.No point driving any further so we nipped up to Radley Gravel Pits to see the Spotted Crake whilst waiting for news of the Shrike.The Shrike did not appear and the Crake showed distantly.
