5000 miles from the UK to Central Africa and he’s done it for the last three years at least that’s 30,000 miles on his migration route. They reckon he makes the 3000km crossing of the mediterranean / Sahara in one flight.

Now that makes my 75 mile drive to see him seem well worth it. Wish him all the best for this year’s journey.

Visited Bowers Marsh this morning for the two Black-winged Stilts and Wood Sandpiper taking the years list to 211 but I failed to find a Green Sandpiper which is proving to be my 2018 bogey bird.

Essex Birder using the blog as a diary of my trips around the country chasing birds. Enjoying the places it takes me and the people I meet along the way. Great to spend time with my Dad and brother as we chase our year lists and grow our life list in the process.
