North Lincs

Me and Andy went over to North Lincs today in the hope the Thayer's Gull from a couple of days ago might be refound, it was a wet murky start so we headed to Far Ings first but it was fairly quiet, a few Avocets in, a Cetti's Warbler singing and a Short Eared Owl hunting over Chowder Ness was the best of it, as the morning started to brighten up we took a walk around nearby Waters Edge CP but again it was very quiet although a couple of Willow Warblers provided us with a year tick. With no news forthcoming on the Gull we decided to head up to Elsham and have a look around for it anyway, we found a flock of Gulls in a field and gave them a good grilling but there was nothing out of the ordinary among them, we finally gave up on it and went to nearby Worlaby Carrs but it was a bit late in the season and a bit early in the day to see much here so we eventually ended up driving round to Blacktoft, plenty of Avocets in now, lots of Harrier action and our first Swallow of the year.
