Chesterfield

Well, this started out as a very relaxed twitch. A UK tick but not a year tick, I arrived before 8 and paid parking until 9 expecting it to be nice and easy. Plenty of space to stand without worrying if the bird might be somewhere else but the Crag Martin had other ideas.

At 9 I had to go move the car. Being a tight Yorkshire man I didn't want to pay any more so drove a little out of town, found a 2 hour slot and walked back. By 10.30 I was convinced the bird hand done a bunk so gave up.

By the time I hit the motorway I saw the bird had been reported so turned around and headed back, now in heavy traffic, found another 2 hour space somewhere else and walked back in to find people leaving after the bird had been showing well but now flown off.

Fortunately, it mustn't have gone far because as I approached the bend, the bird was back and showed for around 10 minutes more. Phew!

Trying to sort out why my list didn't tally with the number on here and it looks like I missed Common gull off the list right back on the first day!

Final score was 605.
