Trains on time (for once) meant I got home and out again before 6pm. The long walk/trot to the area of the reservoir where the bird was seemed to take an eternity. At this point I am always thinking it will leave minutes before I get there. Anyway, despite stopping to look at some rather nice Little Ringed Plovers, there it was. What an absolute corking bird.
I understand it is only the third in the County, and I feel privileged to have been it's company last night
