Along for the ride

My plan for the rest of the day was to have a look around Frodsham, call into Moore NR and pop into Marbury CP, non of that happened? I ended up being driven over to Lincolshire for the Collared Pratincole, which had flown off 5 minutes before we arrived. With the negative news we made our way to Tetney Locks for the 7 Dotterel (3f+4m) which showed well but distantly. Fortune looked upon us as within 10 minutes of arriving back at our first stop the Pratincole flew in, hawking over the roadside flood for about 20 minutes and seemingly impossible to photograph, for me anyhow. What should have been our departure home turned into a White-tailed Eagle hunt with a chap saying "i know where it is, it will be there" yeah ok! suffice to say it wasnt and i was taken home. Always a good day when you see a Pratincole, especially when you didnt plan to.
