Spotted Crake, Attenborough Nature Reserve

I gave myself another 15 minutes after viewing a seemingly uninhabited reed-bed for about two and a half hours without any activity. Whereby I was justly rewarded by the sight of the Spotted Crake which decided to have a quick wash and preen before disappearing back into the dense reed-bed. Another successful twitch, but only just!

Common Snipe

Common Snipe at Minsmere on 13th April 2007

Jack Snipe at Minsmere

Record shots of a Jack Snipe which , in a two hour period, never fully showed itself. However the shots do illustrate the lack of a pale median crown stripe which differentiates it from the larger Common Snipe.Ring Ouzel, Cetti's Warbler, Dartford Warbler and Bittern were also in evidence; particularly good views were had of the Cetti. Friday the 13th of April proved to be a lucky day!
