After finishing my Night shift I headed straight up to Seeswood Pool but no sign of the Night Heron between 5:30 - 6:30am so headed off for some much needed sleep! 2 1/2 hrs later I'm rudely awakened by a txt from Tom Perrins Golden Plover Sp believed American? Reply sent back why not Pacific a bit early for American? Reply back plumage wrong!! Short while later & bleary eyed I arrived on site along with Steve 'Snapper' Richards where we quickly scoped it & both said Pacific!! Much discussion by the ever increasing crowd & eventually most were happy with the ID a good few hrs on site then I headed back to Seeswood where the Night Heron put on a good show...........

Black-crowned Night Heron was the words spoken down the phone to me this morning which got my attention even though I'd only been in bed a cpl of hours after my night shift!! even better it was on Seeswood Pool a few txts & tweets later I was on site & having good views of a 2nd Summer bird which although was on the opposite side of the pool I still managed some reasonable images!! Only my 2nd in Warwickshire not counting the escaped bird from a few winters back in nearby Atherstone..... Many thanks to Alvin Burton for the call.....
