Last night Lee and I caught a lift with Simon and Joe Ingram and another of his mates; Kelvin Pierce. Luckily for us, Lee had just re-newed his family permit for this private location. It didn't take long to find what we were looking for - Temminck's Stint. A stunning bird feeding on the side of the water. Too busy to realise that Lee and I were approaching with cameras and eventually were wathing it feed away 20 feet away. A Hobby was seen with prey as it flew over the road on the way there and 2 Avocets were feedingin the same area as the Stint. For more pictures.
