Horsey Island

Sometime one just gets lucky as I did today. After a quick and disappointing visit to Wrafton Pond I popped out to Horsey for a quick visit.  In my camera's view finder I noticed a small light brown speck had appeared on the river bank on the far side of the breach. It was the Collared Pratincole that had been spotted by others earlier in the week.  Luckily for me the resident Marsh Harrier spooked the Collared Pratincole which took flight and landed close by. Also saw a few Dunlin on the river bank opposite the gantry.
