Oh woe me!  I made a mistake about the Spotted Crakes - they were Baillons.  Thanks to those people who sent me comments, I went out to Sherwood again this morning armed with "book in hand" to check if I had made a mistake about the ID.  After a search and a wait for the bird to turn around so that I could see under the tail,  I realised that it was a Baillons Crake and not a Spotted Crake. The bill seemed to be a lot greener than I thought it should be for a Bailllons but of course it is smaller too. Sorry about the mistake.  No sign of the Bittern.
Is it normal to see Chestnut-breasted and Nutmeg Mannikins on those islands as I saw them on Wednesday as well.
Does anyone know who is studying the Dusky Moorhens with the twirly things on their wings.  I'm curious.
