Av it !

Made a quick detour to Willen Lake last night, as Martin Kincaid had found an Avocet on the spit. I didn't have long so just did a scan from the Sewage Farm car-park. Paul arrived at the same time and we found our bird quite easily, happily feeding near the roots of the fallen down tree.
 A scan of the distant spit found a small wader crouched down low. I ID it as a Ringed Plover, but Rob Hill saw it later and said it was a Little Ringed. Think I'll have to have another look. My excuse it was a long way off and my scope isn't what it could be - what about you Paul ?

  1. The Avocet's a great find.
    Went over this morning, and it was right in front of the hide, giving excellent views.
