On a fine clear but cold day I decided to venture out to Upper College Farm, an area of rough ground, in Bexley Village. In the past 4 weeks it has been home to a rare visitor which breeds in NE Europe (Finland/ Russia) and at this time of year should be in Northern India or China.

It was a very confiding bird which fed along the path, totally oblivious of the people taking photos or watching it despite being only a few metres away. This is the third one I have seen in London, the last being at Walthamstow 4 years ago, but this was definitely the best views.
