A new bird for most on the trip and we saw / heard quite a few around this wetland. It was blowing a gale when we arrived with threatening black clouds but it all blew over and became a pleasant day. The site had such promise and we felt we could see some good stuff now the wind had died down. It would have been good to walk round it again. But instead we drove out and back up the mountains to a deserted village to try and see bears but the heavens opened and we saw absolutely nothing. The bears are another nightmare but I will tell you all about that absolute fiasco tomorrow.
