We arrived before nine in the morning, left after five in the evening and with the exception of small breaks for food and a trip to the Kingfisher hide to see what was occurring there, we waited for the spoonbill to come closer. It didn't.
It did however change its pose once or twice, even if it didn't move very far. Difficult to preen yourself with a beak that big I guess.
We couldn't see any boogie box or earphones any where but it had a little dance at one point.
Having knackered itself out it had a sit down, something it did not do easily and was even more uneasy getting back up again.
