Spotted crake at the Moors today. Seen from the West Hide initially, then later from the Water Rail hide. Hope it stays around for tomorrow - I know Kay would love to see it.
Going through my pics of it now.
Added one now - will add more to my gallery tomorrow.
Super shot of the Spotted Crake Pete:t:...you always seem to be in the right place at the right time!!!
Went to Upton Warren this afternoon, we visited the Flashes first and managed to see the Wood Sandpiper (which was still at the back of the pool!! :C), the lone Dunlin, the lone Black Tailed Godwit, 20+ Curlew, 2 Common Snipe and Green & Common Sandpipers...they seemed to be everywhere today!!!
Surprisingly the Moors car park was near enough empty when we arrived apart from 3 cars which was a bit of a shocker after yesterdays find! We had the spider/concrete hide to ourselves and managed to see a Juv Water Rail that was quite happily fishing on the edge of the reed bed in open water and we also managed to see the Little Egret having a good old preen in the lovely sunshine!!
Visiting Upton was a lovely end to a super weekend for us!!!!
