September 2nd will forever more be marked as the day our 2nd ever Wryneck was discovered. It was disturbed by Scrubs regular Roy Nuttall, as he walked the path intersecting what we term as the Magic Bush area at the eastern edge of the grassland. It flew up from the patch and perched conveniently on a bush allowing Roy the opportunity to revel in the glory of this lifer.
Of course, when I went looking for it just an hour later it was nowhere to be found.
Ah well, at least I saw an overflying Little Egret a couple days previously. A rare bird here.
