Black-winged stilts breeding in England

This video says about itself

An immature Spoonbill and a flock of Black-winged Stilts were present at Ghadira Nature Reserve, Malta on 27th March 2008.

From Wildlife Extra:

May 2008. A pair of rare black-winged stilts is breeding in the unlikely setting of Cheshire, many miles from their normal breeding areas in mainland Europe. The black winged stilts arrived in Cheshire in late April; this is only the seventh recorded time stilts have attempted to nest in the UK.

The RSPB have set up an ‘Aren’t birds brilliant!’ viewing scheme in partnership with Cheshire County Council to ensure that visitors get the best possible views of this elegant, long legged bird. There will also be around the clock surveillance of the nesting site to ensure the birds are not disturbed.
