|View from our first hide at Cley|
We then moved on to the next hide, the middle one of the three at the centre of the reserve. The greenshank had also moved location as it was now at a different pool that was more visible from this hide. We watched it feeding along an island at the far side of the pool before flying to the front of the island closest to our hide, sheltering amongst a patch of long grass with only its head poking out of it now and then. As I waited for it to emerge into view, I was distracted by the call of an approaching kingfisher and I then saw it land on a post in the ditch metres from our hide. I pointed it out to Mum and we ended up watching both the kingfisher and the hiding spot of the greenshank.
