This bird was been a long time coming as being the first since the Wakering Stairs birds back in November 1996. Initially it was very elusive from the first report eluding all local birders for at least a couple of months until it settle around the broom area of East Beach. These shots here are heavy crops in low light and rainy conditions with the old 20D back up camera hence not the best of quality but its still a cracking bird.
