Like Neil Hayward said,  Great Views!  Thanks Neil, who is, if you others don't know, working on a Big Year, and he's at 704 so far! Good luck to him.  Nice guy.

Third day lucky!

Arrived at 6:30 am. Had the bird fly over me at 7am calling. It flew to the other side of the channel and I couldn't relocate it.

I was then joined by a fellow birder Rolan, and we had the bird calling as it flew above us. We saw the bird land one one of the logs in the very long grassy area. It then flew to the very short grass / mud area where it's been described before. By far he best way of finding the bird is listening for the flight call.

Conditions are foggy but dry and not too windy.

Currently still being seen at 9:25.

Awesome bird!
