Birding by night - Mr Whiplash is in town. 172 species in total

A night ride, departing home at 2200 to ride 'a certain distance' in 'a certain direction' to 'a certain site', meeting up with 'certain people' at the far end. After a bit of getting lost in the dark, I found the right spot, and in between bursts of Nightingale song - there it was! A Spotted Crake proclaiming territory loud and clear in the marsh! Fantastic stuff.

I cycled home in the light rain - getting back at 'a certain ungodly hour'.....
