– Comments: “Continuing adult found this morning by Iain Rayner. Originally it was very hard to see as it foraged in the dense vegetation around the west end of the bridge but it flew up onto an exposed perch about 50 north of the bridge on the West Bank of the river, giving excellent views. It was still there when I left but it may return to the shoreline to feed.”
