Midwinter Pipit

Finally after 8 years trying I managed a good view of a Water Pipit at Chevington this morning. It was present on the small flash at the south end early this morning. The bird was very mobile, often flying off to the pool at the burn mouth or flying towards the south end of the coal road. A Kingfisher put in a brief appearance flying from the burn mouth towards the south pool.

 The Slavonian Grebe was present on the north pool and 3 Pintail were on the Budge Fields. At Cresswell Pond the first-winter Long-billed Dowitcher remained on the west shore along with a Knot.
