Lesser Yellowlegs: MEGA DIP on the Yellow Billed Cuckoo!

I was bloody gutted, I guess it goes to show how fast you have to move in this game and how important a quick lift share can be and leaving it one day in this case didn't pay off.

Despite leaving at 12pm and travelling through the night and not seeing the Cuckoo, it was still good to pick up two new ticks.

I got at least five Balearic's off the point while eating a veggie Cornish pasty - the best way in my opinion to see Shearwaters.

We also picked up the yellow leg that has been on Cooperhouse Creek for a while now.
