Stone Curlew 11 May 2016 Bradwell Bird Observatory (BBO) John Sutherby 1 Weymarks track pea fields. Occasionally harassed by crows making it fly from one field to another which made it difficult to re-find especially as the peas are now quite long, and with the rain and fog not helping either. First found at 1000hrs and still being seen up to 1430hrs before the fog closed right in.
