Stilts stayed around until Sunday evening but had buggered off by Monday morning.
Apart for the stilts it was a bit of a frustrating weekend with missing the tern on Saturday and then a quail flushed from the dunes by the beach boardwalk (would have been a reserve tick) and then missing a singing golden oriole on Monday. Compensation was monster views of bittern on both Saturday and Monday. The female has taken to feeding by the main path and has been showing for up to an hours in the open down to about 30m. Yesterday I saw it catch at least 3 6" rudd.
