North Lincs

Out with Mark and we decided on North Lincs today, we headed over the river to Far Ings first and soon located the Ferruginous Duck with a small group of Tufties on the East Pit but there was nothing more out of the ordinary on the reserve apart from a few Pinkfeet going over. Next up was Killingholme Haven where we hoped to photograph Black Tailed Godwits but although there was a handful toing and froing the majority must have been out on the estuary, there was also an injured Pink Footed Goose, a couple of Little Egrets and a Common Sandpiper here. After lunch we headed over to Alkeborough Flats where there were more Egrets and lots of Waders including an impressive count of Avocets, also nine or ten Spotted Redshanks dropped in and a Marsh Harrier was hunting over the reeds, we then went to Hatfield Moors and made a futile attempt to find some Little Stints that had been in the Packards South area over the last few days, there are no good maps of the site though and we never really knew if we were in the right place or not and although we found a little flock of Ringed Plovers there was only a single Dunlin with them.
