Coldwaltham Water Pipit

The Water Pipit had now been reported a few times in Coldwaltham sewage works(infact there was two at one point) so though we'd give it a go! We waited around Half an hour at the entrance gate to the sewage works as ofcourse there is strictly no access. Six Reed Buntings, 4 Grey Wagtails, 5+ Meadow Pipits and 2 Pied Wagtails were all noted but no Water Pipit. As we had moved around a little I heared Grandad say "Water Pipit" Brilliant or so I thought! Before I could find the bird it had moved of with a couple of meadow not to be seen again! Met Owen Mitchell down there who had also waited around half an hour but no luck however he did have a hunting Barn Owl over the brooks but no Shot-eared owl which had been seen a couple of days ago. No matter there always tomorrow if the weather holds up!...
