A day off, so decided to have a walk round Snettisham Pits, with recent sightings of Mediterranean Gulls and a few weeks ago Shorelarks. None of that to be seen today (by me), but a good walk next to the sea. Nice to see unusual species and perhaps the more exotic.????...try guessing what these belong to:
The Black-headed Gull colonies were in full and noisy swing, great places to watch endless tooing and frooing, accompanied by endless disputes. No Meds though, not that I could see anyway.
Out on the Wash and thousands of waders, mostly too far out for decent views as I was scopeless, but just occasionally a few birds would fly a little closer, here a bunch of Black-tailed Godwits.
With the skies getting greyer I had a half hour sit and views of Green Sandpiper.
So finally back home, via a quick stop at Pentney lakes. Last week the lakes had Redstart and Little ringed Plover. The Plovers were there but no sign of the Redstart, not surprisingly. A look through the Swans first because they are big and easy, never anything of a surprise here of course,
