A bit of a cruise around Shropshire was hijacked by news of a Bee-eater seen in flight during the morning. Did the Condover area bird ever leave us?? Two hours plus of flogging the narrow lanes near Aston Pigott were to no avail however!
The only images from the day were of this Water Rail - dashing across in front of the hide.
At it's nearest!
Cropped for a close up!
Then heading back into the safety of the reed bed!
