Very happy today but it wasn't looking good , after an hours journey on the M25 and seeing plenty of smiling faces on the walk to the area of the bbpipit . Shaun and I were told the bird had gone and only 1 minute ago it had been less than 3 foot away gutted comes to mind.
We were told this does happen and the bird does come back and in about 20 mins they were right and with in minutes the bird was about 3 foot away . With some great views an hour had passed and left very happy .
On our way home we stopped off at lea valley and caught up with a bittern not a good view but showed how camouflaged they are for sure .
