I know how you feel about dipping Mark.
As my sister was down from York visiting Eastbourne for a few days break.Yesterday I visited Princes park first of all about 11.15 and then later at 3.00 The Bonapartes did not show and Phil Smith was there all day and never saw it. A couple of other birders had vsited the Wednesday before and a no show that day !!

Where does it go on Wednesdays as it was reported back again today. !!
