Wryneck - Eastmoor

I received exciting news from June Oliver yesterday that she had watched a Wryneck for 10 minutes yesterday morning sat on the wall bordering the field with the Water Buffalo at Upper Loads. Sadly June didn't have her camera and there was no sign of the bird this morning when Ken, Simon and I searched for it, or later this afternoon when I returned.
We did hear Snipe going over and I had a further 16 this afternoon and Ken had recorded 7 at the start of the week so we have witnessed quite an interesting movement during the past week.
The Wryneck is an extremely rare visitor to Derbyshire and the first I have heard of in the immediate area.
