Hard to resist a lifer just a few miles away. I had always hoped that I'd come across a Long-billed Dowitcher but got fed up of waiting. Having missed the one at Greylake a few weeks ago due to Mothers Day commitments also influenced the decision. There were two birds present but mainly asleep. One was coming into summer plumage. I managed some truly awful shots which aren't even worth cropping more than just to take the edges off - we'll call it an atmospheric shot.
Supporting cast also good with loads of Blackwit, at least 5 Bitterns seen (and almost photographed) and a Somerset tick in the form of a Great White Egret.
