The Curlew seems to have slipped from the bird alert services (well, the free ones anyway!)...does anyone know if it's still there today?

I'm coming up to Suffolk again next weekend and if it hangs about, will be nice to try and get a closer look and better pics, without having to stretch/stoop for a viewing position like I did last Sunday.

Think that it might be harder to locate it by then though, with a fraction of the people looking. Unless, of course, the DNA tests are fast-tracked through and come up with surprising results!

Also...further to one of my earlier comments, and just for interest now, I suppose...has anyone managed to locate any pics of alboaxillaris Whimbrel? Just to see why they can be classed as a key confusion species.
