Collared Pratincole mini twitch 7-5-11

With the Collared Pratincole being reported at Rosper road pools near Immingham i set off for a 12 mile trip on my bike which took just over a hour with a couple wrong turns i finally arrived at the pools.
I got talking to some other birders that hadn't seen it but was saying that it was seen upto 12.40.
So we sat it out for a few hours in the late afternoon with the light going at around 6 we gave up and decided it wasn't going to show oh well next time so i set off for the 12 mile trip back.
Birds included
Lesser & Common Whitethroat
Yellow Wagtail
Yellow Hammer
Long-tail,Blue & Great Tit
Gold & Greenfinch
Little Grebe
Tufted Duck

On my return home and getting more info the person only reported this bird 4 minutes after it had gone
Seems he had been watching it all morning and he says suppression is a dirty word  thanks  cost me a lifer and a wasted 24 mile bike ride round trip.
