I set off for South Gloucestershire at about midnight, I was well down the M5 and a hour from where I needed to be, and pulled into a motorway services and had a couple of hours sleep in the car. Then, on my way again. At first light I was heading across muddy and flooded fields on my way to find this National Rarity. It was a very worthwhile trip. I spent two very enjoyable hours watching this bird. As a side event, about a dozen Ravens continued to display overhead. A great bird to see, and a life tick for me.
