ad. In full SP in a pool/ sedges which was the result of flooding, now nearly dry. I returned home (quickly)to get the camera gear, but by the time I got back it was gone. Not re-located. A first for here, in what is an amazing year on patch !

A pair found earlier by AB. Perched on E side of island and seen to fly very high to the W but returned, maybe the wind was too strong.
