Whixall floods - Water Pipit!!

Whilst I'd ticked one of the two Water Pipits with good scope views at  Whixall floods the previous day. The views were so fleeting and distant, I upgraded the view to that of  just about acceptable 'record shot' today! The paler of the two birds only and at closest approach - some 60m distant!...

Nice to see a couple of Golden Plover in flight overhead with a flock of 25 Curlew.

I need a much better shot of either Water Pipit however!!!
