Zitting Cisticola - 07/11/2009

Or Fan-tail to me and you!! Monkey Cabs picks me up at 06:00 sharp, for what would be attempt N0 2 for me and third time lucky for Monkey. All is well at 07:15 when we arrive at Pegwell bay, no wind and sun rising. We wait patiently at the reed bed in front of the car-park where the bird has been showing well all week!! A crowd of nearly 100 gather and at 08:00 we could here the bird singing in front off us. It was not long before we had cracking views of the bird perched openly on the saltmarsh, and even hovering to compete with the nearby stonechats.

Cracking little bird, also had a pair of Peregrines and a fem Merlin upsetting the wintering waders in the bay, and the odd ring-necked parakeet over.
