**MEGA** Hudsonian Godwit

A Hudsonian Godwit was found at Shapwick Heath NR last Saturday whilst I was at Southend for the football. I was going to see it the next day but it was not reported that day or for the next few days. It was however seen again a few days later. I decide to go for it early Saturday morning and was hoping to get back in time for Luton’s last game off the season. Left at 3.30am Saturday morning arriving at Shapwick Heath just after 6.30 am. Luckily the bird was present when I arrived. I also managed to see Great White Egret, Bittern, Cetti’s Warbler, Garganey and Kingfisher. I was back in time to be down the pub by 12.30 and Luton beat Stevenage 2-0. Here are a few poor record shots of the bird, it was nearly always quite distant in dull conditions.
