Headed over to Lincolnshire yesterday morning with Leigh. Starting at Freiston Shore there were plenty of waders over the high tide roost but the star bird was the Long-billed Dowitcher. Thankfully it was showing pretty closely but frustratingly it was really only showing through a thick Hawthorn hedge.
Moving on we headed to, a pretty birdless, Gibraltar Point. At least the cakes are pretty smashing!
Our final stop was the excellent Frampton Marsh RSPB Reserve. The Pectoral Sandpiper was showing well but required a bit of creative manipulation of the scope to get any shots.
Plenty of other stuff around the reserve but five juvenile Little Grebe kept us entertained and allowed me to practice my digiscoping.
