excuse the photoshopping.
With the Wryneck in the bag I headed for The Wizzal in the forelorn hope that the Pratincole just might return. En route a quick in and out at a local stakeout for a Cheshire exotic in the shape of several very obliging Mandarin Ducks...
Yet more was to come and at Parkgate on the magically named Donkey Stand Flash there was a wee wader going about its business, one diminutive Temminck's Stint my first in Cheshire since one on the patch (Neumann's Flash) way back in 2006.
I some how forgot to look around and missed the Spoonbill and Great White Egret that were on show but at least I bagged the Year Tick and the fish and chips were pretty good as well...yummy!
Onwards to BMW to witness some awesome dude stringing as a couple claimed a pair of Garganey that swam right in front of the hide for all to see...they were Gadwall!!! still its a great place and we've all got to learn from our mistakes, well some certainly need to.
What a day out though in Cheshire a day that usually finds the Comberbach Casuals out attempting yet another Cheshire Day List what with Wryneck, Temminck's, Spoonbill, Great White Egret,
