While walking by a somerset harbour yesterdy, I came across a bird I did not recognise. It was about the size of a mistle thrush, light brown in colour (I was not close enough to see too much detail). I think it had a dark stripe across the head. It's feet seemed large. It ran along as though gliding. When it flew, it reminded me of a skylark soaring, but it didn't fly so high. It made what I can only decribe as an increasingly excited 'chip' sound as it flew higher. I saw it both on Sunday and Wednesday of this week. Both times it was on its own. COuld it be a mygrant that has lost its way? Or is there a more common explanation?
