My main target for the day was Jack Snipe which has been seen from North Hide fairly regularly recently. It took me 2 attempts during the morning and earky afternoon but I eventually scored with some nice views of a bobbing and feeding bird which remained hidden/obscured most of the time. Also there were 5 Common Snipe, the 2 Smew (both redheads) are still lingering on and a Bittern boomed.
In between times a walk along the north wall and a visit to East Hide gave me Chinese Water Deer, c25 Mediterranean Gulls, a single Dunlin and 2 lovely close-up Black-tailed Godwits that simply had to be photographed!
5 Common Buzzards were up at Ellingham on the way home.
