Black-winged Pratincole at Frampton

With the Jims needing Black-winged Pratincole for a life tick I thought it worth the trip today so we set off around 1pm and arrived to find the bird roosting on the grazing marsh which is under quite a bit of water following the recent rains. We watched the bird sit in the grass from 3pm to 6pm when it suddenly took flight and after a few minutes hawking it flew over the sea wall and was lost to view.

Nice to chat with Graham again and it was a good crowd and an enjoyable twitch.

Year list now 263

Pratincole..it's in there but may take a little finding.
Some of the crowd
