Lancashires' birders came out for this one and no surprise there due to the birds rarity.
The bird was very distant and the light wasn't too good either, in spite of this, reasonable
scope views at 60x were obtained as it fed on a flooded field.
It flew short distances a few times while i was there, showing the crucial, all-dark rump.
My attempts at digi-scoping are very poor but at least i got something!
