Begins to be some achievement for a beginner birdwatcher

@ Mary: I managed to see it after about an hour and thirty of waiting.

Well done, worth the wait even if you only got half a dozen shots, I waited an hour trying to get a young shag today, he kept diving and eluded me, but theres always tomorrow.

Very nice. I saw a couple of snipe once but never got any kind of decent shots.
