Dowtwitching and other photos

Long-billed Dowitcher, Rutland Water, Rutland, 09.08.05 © Will Bowell

A one day wonder; the above Long-billed Dowitcher found by Steve Lister yesterday tempted Will out for a quick evening twitch, but the bird appears to have gone now. It remained rather distant for the DLSR set up even with converters so the above is just a record shot of this first official record for the county of this rare American wader.

Below are some other photos taken by the wandering birders during the last two weeks.Ferruginous Duck, Fen Drayton, Cambs, 07.08.05 © Will BowellHouse Martin, St Neots, Cambs, 07.08.05 © Will BowellPectoral Sandpiper, Titchwell RSPB, Norfolk, 05.08.05 © Josh JonesMediterranean Gull, Deeping Lakes NR, Lincs, 02.8.05 © Josh JonesCattle Egret, Brampton, Cambs, 30.07.05 © Will BowellCattle Egret, Brampton, Cambs, 30.07.05 © Josh JonesRed-necked Phalarope, Titchwell RSPB, Norfolk, 29.07.05 © Josh JonesLittle Gull, Titchwell RSPB, Norfolk, 29.07.05 © Josh JonesArctic Skua, Thornham Point, Norfolk, 27.07.05 © Josh JonesYellow-legged Gull, Titchwell RSPB, Norfolk, 26.07.05 © Josh JonesLittle Egret, Cley East Bank, Norfolk, 26.07.05 © Josh JonesYellow-legged Gull, Cley NWT, Norfolk, 26.07.05 © Josh JonesCurlew Sandpiper, Salthouse, Norfolk, 26.07.05 © Josh Jones

Some really nice photos, here. I'll have to come back to your site to get a leg up on the birds of the UK, where I'll be next summer!
