A Long Billed Dowitcher at Coombe Hill Meadows, Gloucestershire, yesterday......(pics at The Gloster Birder).

A wader of North America, this one has taken the scenic route on migration !

Not to steal your thunder but there has been one on the Lincolnshire coast for a month. There is also an Isabelline Wheatear.

We think we are smart don't we and these little birds fly around the globe, no smart alec alectronics or sat navs to help.   Never cease to be amazed at nature.

They get around don't they, the last one recorded in Gloucestershire was in 2012 at WWT Slimbridge, it stayed on the trust for about two months before it moved on.

Also a black tern at Slimbridge at the moment, and two Osprey on passage at Nailsworth, feeding on a private lake.

But if we are seeing them surely they are lost !
