News that the Long-billed Dowitcher was feeding by the road got me out of bed and into nose to tail traffic. Eventually got to Cresswell where the bird was just to the north of the causeway. With the rain lashing down, I managed to get a couple of shots from the car, but with little success due to the near darkness. The dowitcher swiftly relocated to the far side of the main pool and although I gave it a couple of hours, it didn't come any closer.
Other birds of note were 29 flyover Whooper Swan and a Merlin that shot through the car park.
