Spoonbill moves on after a weeks stay. May 2013.

 Well it looks like the Spoonbill has now left. On the 1st of May I took my Dad along to see it and despite the thick fog not lifting for over 3 hours, he got some good views. It was spending most of its time sleeping on the island in the main pit every day, often being awoken by mobbing gulls or the resident Mute swan that did not appreciate his company next to him. It was last seen nearby at Broom, flying off South on Sunday (5th) night.
