Anyone who knows Aylesbeare Common well, will know exactly where this is.
The burning question was, would I be able to circumnavigate the pine stump to get a view in better light, before it did another disappearing act? The answer, much to my surprise was yes!
That's more like it!
It then moved into a small bush a little bit nearer to me but all too briefly and I only got one more shot...
Then it... Can you guess?
Yes. It vanished!
Before I left several other birders had arrived but I haven't heard if any of them caught up with it.
I feel very lucky to have seen it twice now.
