Hurst Spit

I managed to get down to Hurst mid afternoon, to find that the bird was particuarly elusive in the Maize field, and hadn't been seen for a while now. There was a few birders remaining, with the majority having ticked it earlier in the day. It wasn't long before it was located the other side and within minutes was watching the bird at fairly close range.

The could easily go missing, lowering it head and legging it into and up the next forrow without a trace. After a while i thought it was rude not to get a record shot as it continued to move further into the field.

Look at this for a shot, clearly a record, my first county tick and lifer combined in a while. (c) Ashley Howe
