Oriental pratincole frampton marsh 11 May

A morning visit to priory had produced a lone arctic Tern, but news of the Oriental Pratincole continuing to Linger at Frampton Marsh meant a diversion to Lincolnshire to complete the Pratincole Hat trick. having seen Collared and Black winged pratincoles in Norfolk, Oriental Pratincole - very much the rarest of the 3 in Britain - was the missing link. The day turned out to be cold and windy, with the bird spending most of the time sheltering on the ground. Late afternoon sunshine eventually produced superb flying displays .
