Making Peace With Wrynecks

It seems as though the birding Gods ingested the unhappiness I mentioned on this blog yesterday about not being able to see - let alone find - a Wryneck.

A midday visit to Waggs Plot was where my luck changed a little, as after twenty minutes of looking this beauty flew up from the bank beside my parked car....

That's more like it!

After this view, it dissapeared into the hedge and went missing for another ten minutes, before showing again a couple of times in an adjacent garden....

...more distantly though

Now time to find one :-)

I haven't done much other birding today, except for a rapid sweep of the Estuary where two Knot, six Bar-tailed and 16 Black-tailed Godwits were on show...

Four of the six Barwits - a decent number for our Estuary
