I am travelling at the moment having been in Kent today for an Elmney NNR Meeting. Not much time for birding but last night we were out most of a very cold evening watching a film crew using the reserve to make a new feauture film of Great Expectations. David Walliams was present looking very cold but my attention was taken up watching hordes of waders flying over and caught by the massive lights being used to reproduce a very effective moonlight.
Hordes of Knot, Bar-tailed and Black-tailed Godwits, Curlews, Oystercatchers, Snipe and Redshanks were all involved.
This evening I am at my good friends the Barkers in Suffolk and I hope to get out birding tomorrow.
