upton warren flashes


ok well now well and truily behind with this so......


Matt had again offered to pick me up from earlswood to go and see the PECTORAL SANDPIPER that had taken up residence on the flashes.


we entered the hide and this is what greeted us, a stunning juv cracker, and i was actually really supprised by how small it was ( lifer- 211), i just about managed 2 mins of footage of this bird right below the hide when my camera bleeped and turned itslef off,


NO BATTERY,


but here is what i did get.
