Frampton Marsh RSPB.May 2010.

After receiving the pager message I was sorted and ready to leave the house less than twenty minutes later. With a journey of just under two hours the nerves started, especially after missing on the Oriental in Kent. Almost there and still no news but after a stop for petrol the pager relieved my fears and on I went.

By viewing over the bank I was to get good views and although on tip toes and with a lot of vegetation in the way I was able to get some record shots. It was very obliging at times and actively feeding not far from the ranks of birders lined up. A happy journey home for sure.
