SPOONBILL grip back

On Saturday 10th, Steve Blain located an adult EURASIAN SPOONBILL in Quest Pit late afternoon, sparking a major county twitch - both LGRE and Andy Plumb being the only ones of the 16 observers gathered to get a County Tick. The bird remained until Sunday and also commuted to nearby Rookery Pit that day.

All 4 BLACK TERNS remained on Stewartby Lake, whilst Marston Vale had 2 WHINCHATS and Warden Hills a COMMON REDSTART..
