Went up to Pulfin & High eske tonight for the collared pratincole.
Strange night really, drenched in sweat by the time I got there, clouds of midges, nearly pitch black at 7.00, chucking it down with rain while 8.30 then sunshine.
Got home (10 miles away) not a drop of rain.
Oh by the way a Yorkshire Mega showing well but in really poor light.
The bird looked ill to me didn't feed for the 2 1/2 hours I was there, tried flying a couple of times but only got about a metre off the ground.
Hopefully it will perk up but the signs aren't good.
