upton warren,with not long again untill dusk(getting to that time of year) so as no news was coming out the flashes and i still want to log that bloody bittern,so the moors it was,i knew that a pintail was showing there anyway so even more of an incentive to go,went again to the west hide.nodody was in the hide so i tokk a look in the log book,up there in BIG letters was barnicle goose with pintail and 1 wigeon in smaller letters.i scanned the goose flock and in there was a barnicle goose.easy to spot with its small size compared to the canadians.i took a few videos in the gloom:
i then scanned where the snipe was last time and i located 3 wigeon,all in eclipse plumage,and with these was the female pintail,only the secod ive seen(well my first was a pair),3 water rail were calling and a snipe was giving good views to the right of the hide
3 cetti's warblers were singing and 1 shown briefly,highlights here were:
1 barnicle goose
3 water rail(h)
3 cetti's warbler.
and still no sign of that bloody bittern
