I have been after a photo of a spoonbill for quite a while so when a report of 3 came up for Blacktoft Sands during the week I hoped they would stayuntil Friday at least.
I got to Blacktoft for about 3.30 and spent an hour looking for them in the wrong hide!(although I did see a bittern while I was waiting)
One was particularly mobile and kept walking up and down continuously swiping its bill from side to side and occasionally skipping theough the water as it chased shrimps.
It was joined by a couple of little egrets later in the evening as it settled down to roost.
Not a lot more to report other than a couple of marsh harriers,4 greenshank and the bittern.
Quite lucky as they have apparrently flown off today.
