It was in fact 'a Godwit' for most until I confirmed Tony's hunch from the camera back in the car park, before hastening to the hide!
Where it was showing rather well!
By the side of the Memorial Hide.....
Just as I was hoping he'd do something about the mud on the end of the bill?
And then after a short flight onto the nearby island, befriending a Common Snipe....
Showing off nicely despite the lack of sunshine!
A nice Purple Loosestrife archway!
And then these were the last few moments before it mysteriously vanished!
What could be next?..... Curlew Sand, Knot and Little Stint - all seen here before but not for a few years! Maybe I should aim higher? Come on you mega!!!
