After a disappointing morning trying to find the King Eider at the Witham Mouth, Dave and I headed off to Freiston Shore, bagging a Merlin on the walk back to the car.
A few shorebirds were still roosting on the Reservoir and this Knot strayed closest. A few more distant Knot were still in fading summer plumage.
Moving on to the other ‘new’ RSPB reserve at Frampton Marsh we didn’t have any luck with the Little Stint or any Redstart. We were treated to a flypast from this Spitfire though. Later in the day back at Cut End, dipping the King Eider again we were treated to another flypast this time by the Red Arrows.
