Little Auk on the River Thames

Holly was in latent phase labour yesterday and I thought my run of bad luck was continuing and I wouldn't be able to twitch the Farmoor Little Auk. Luckily the contractions stopped for a few hours this morning, enough time for me to get work sorted, get Jacob to school and twitch the Auk and try for the Red-breasted Geese too at Otmoor (dipped them- bummer)  before racing back home , picking up Holly who by now was in more established labour and then off to the maternity ward which is where we are now awaiting the arrival of Jacob's brother.  

The Auk was taken into care and after examination was released in Somerset on the River Severn so all good all round!
