Octagon Farm WATER PIPIT finally nailed for 2011

The WATER PIPIT was again at Octagon Farm this morning, although unlike the previous sightings at the end of last month, it is now feeding with Pied Wagtails around the puddles on the recently reconstituted southern end of the large arable field. immediately to the east of the hard standing area. A nice reward for several recent blank visits and braving the rain this morning! (Tony P)
