Curlew County Tick - 19.8.09

The juv Curlew. Now thankfully on my county list!

After a morning of having new windows fitted I checked my pager around 3.50pm and was stunned to read of a Curlew at Wilstone Reservoir. I left right away and just before 5pm connected with the juvenile bird showing very well from the hide as it bathed and called.

Also present were 6 Little Egrets, 1 Greenshank and a fly by Kingfisher. The Egrets took my UK total of the species past the 900 mark! Sad ain't I?!!
