A rainy afternoon

Out after work, it was another miserable wet afternoon even though it had been forecast to be drier and brighter so I headed off to North Cave Wetlands, there are plenty of Avocets at this reserve this year although like most other places there is a general dearth of migrants, Hirundine numbers are good though, last weekend there had been three Black Necked Grebes on the Main lake and one was still present today, I spent most of the afternoon in the hide dodging the showers and hoping it would come close enough for a decent pic but unfortunately it didn’t. The rain finally stopped early evening and I took the opportunity to head off to the Lower Derwent Valley, I had a quick look from Bubwith Bridge, no Terns here today then moved on to the viewing platform at Thorganby, the area is well flooded now and there was a good selection of birds on show including the Black Tern and a big flock of summer plumaged Black Tailed Godwits.
