This evening I sneaked out when my computer wasn't watching to visit Kelly's just pre-sunset. I must confess to, very atypically, disagreeing with Marnix re his assessment of Kelly's. It's still full of water but it is entirely covered with Azolla, giving a most misleading impression. I had the advantage of having dabbling ducks scattered all over it, swimming (and sometimes wading!). Mud is certainly appearing and I don't doubt M will be right soon enough; hopefully some scattering waders might visit before that happens. There is still water to the head of Crake Alley, so we've got a little while yet.

CA seems like the place to be. At least 2 and probably 3 Spotless Crakes seen, though sporadic calls suggested a few more than that, feeding with 3 snipe. A brief appearance by the/a Lewin's Rail.
