This long awaited addition to the SOG area list was a stunner. I connected a few days earlier with the bird but it was only seen in flight once and in failing light so today I staked it out all day in the hide from 8am. It didn't put in an appearance until 12.57pm! These photos were obtained late in the day at around 4pm and 5.30pm-ihs as it flew and then later back down the fleet.
