So Near, but Still No Scarce Find

I was going to title this with some type of reference to my bird finding ability, but all I can do is keep trying!
Started at Burnham Overy, where all we could muster was 3 Little Gull - all 1st year and a presumed migrant Reed Warbler singing in the scrub. A family of Stonechat were also present.

Whilst taking this someone was finding a Common Rosefinch just a few 100 yards away, in an area we had just searched. Oh well, that's birding! We didn't find out for 3 hours!

  1. unlucky guys, does seems though not finding stuff is making you more determined to find something. When you do get something all the near misses make sense.
