The Lower Moors Spotted Crake have a good ol stretch
The BEE-EATER was flushed by a Blackbird and disappeared over the moor. It wasn't until 12.15 that Robin saw it fly over the moor and 45 minutes later, Doug page was observing it on St Agnes.
The Spotted Crake shared the flooded willow with a single Water Rail and both birds were on show throughout most of the day.

Tree Pipit at Lower Moors
2 White Wagtail were on the football pitch
Yesturday on the golf course I counted up to 4 Ring Ouzel and Will Scott had a high total of 167 Wheatear
With only one or two sightings a year, this Yellow-legged Gull was still a good record
Over a month ago 'Match of the Day' played the great intro to 'Stagger Lee' while showing the faces of various managers in slow motion. However, they stopped the music just before Nick Cave was just about to sing. If you have a listen to this one hell of a song, you'll understand why. A long time ago my band played this song a lot.
