I managed to pick up two lifers in the form of a Cattle Egret and a Red-necked Phalarope. On top of that we had two Little Stints, a Pectoral Sandpiper, Bar tailed Godwits, Ruff, Dunlin plus lots lots more.
Eleanor wasn't too impressed with the one mile walk to the second hide, especially when we got there the Cattle Egret had moved back to where we'd come from. Still, we caught up with it when we got back and I've had to promise all sorts of goodies in return.
A special day with special birds and lots of very nice people met too. It's what birding is all about.
Here's the Cattle Egret in amongst the Greylag Geese, a bit ruffled after a preen.
Pectoral Sandpiper in the middle with the Lapwings.
Red-necked Phalarope. Very distant from the hide, hence the very poor record shots here.
