Squacco, Newton Abbott, 11th October

Dan and I twitched this stupidly approachable bird in a town centre park. We thought it had gone, because when we arrived, the only birder present was stood some distance from his scope, hands in pocket. As we got nearer, we realised that the bird was about 30 feet from him (and us!), on the wall around the pond. Dipped on Cirls at Exminster, however........

Nice bird, shame I missed it, but surely not tickable! The photos suggest you were at the Zoo.
