We did get fleeting glimpses of the Nightingale as it moved from song post to song post, but never once did we get the bins on it. However, the best thing about Nightingales is hearing them and we certainly did that.
On the way back to NP we stopped off at Gallows Bridge Farm on the off chance that the Whimbrels would perform for us, of course they did not, but we did see the Little Ringed Plover and took some shots of other local birds.

We also stopped for a couple of Red Kites close to the road, but the light was not too good, one day we'll get one close in the sun!
