The Sandpiper showed really well, but never got very close;
A real highlight of the day, was from a bird that both Tina and me love, and that's the Curlew. There were a group of about 20 in front of the hide, calling quite often, which for us is one of the best avian sounds that there is;
We went straight to the Water rail hide hopefully for the Kingfisher and even before I sat down Tina saw it on one of the branches over the water, but he flew off just as I go the camera pointed. Never mind at least we had a good view. Otherwise it was quite quiet, adding Cormorant, Common Sandpiper, Little Grebe and Swans to our sightings for the day.
As always visiting Upton is a real pleasure, we keep saying we must get there earlier, perhaps this week?
