Long Billed Dowitcher - Lifer number 2!!

This little beauty turned up at Lossiemouth Estuary, after dipping on it yesterday I connected with it twice today once myself and the second time with Keith and Fran from Wolverhampton.

A lot smaller than I imagined and was bullied a bit by the Wigeon, at one point a single Wigeon chased the Dowitcher up stream for a few hundred yards before chasing it back downstream again!

A top start to the day.
