Comments:
A twitch for the Fairy Martins. Infuriating moment as a flock of Martins went through in which Dad picked out an obvious Fairy... but which I saw in quick silhouette and so couldn't claim it! My photos may yet show it... but for now I wouldn't count it.

Easily the highlight of the trip! I'd literally just said it looked good for Snipe in the paddocks... and, lo and behold, two burst out in the middle of the township! Was a much needed nice surprise to see these especial favourites of mine! Distant record shot attached... but still a clear ID!

One of the well known Fairy Martin's, clearly seen by Dad and seen very poorly by me.
