Unspotted Crake

Yesterday I had a trip out to Old Moor and Edderthorpe in the company of Dave (Simmo on Birdforum). We started off at Old Moor, which had a good selection of waders on show, including black-tailed godwit, green sandpiper, greenshank, common sandpiper, snipe and little egret. I also got on to a wheatear and two yellow wagtails, both firsts for me on the site.

We had a quick visit to Edderthorpe Flash to try and see the two spotted crakes that are currently there, with no joy. Apparently one had done a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it walk into the open not long before we arrived, but it was a no show for us of this elusive bird. There was however a sanderling there, quite a nice bird to see inland.
