Yet again another bird missed. I picked up Nigel Blake and headed off before sunrise to Milton keynes for the Spotted Sandpiper. I still havent connected with this species, and still things are no bloody different. We arrived just after 5am and stayed till almost 9 and the bird did not show. DIPPED! Totally frustrating when the images from the day before depicted it so close. DAMN! I think I will have to make a template like this entry just for the fact that it would get so much usage!.
