North Lincs

Out with Andy today, Mark is suffering with a bad back at the moment, we decided on North Lincs as there has been a few good birds around recently, first up was Covenham Reservoir where there has been a Black Throated Diver for the last few days, it was still present this morning but surprisingly elusive, we’d get on to it then it would dive and we’d lose it picking it up again 5-6 mins later in a totally different area, we were lucky enough to have it pop up in front of us on a couple of occasions though allowing us to get some photo’s, there were also masses of Cormorants and Goldeneyes on the Reservoir plus a couple of female Common Scoter and a Sanderling running around the edge. We headed back to the Humber via Burton upon Stather but there was no sign of yesterdays Waxwings which was a shame the light was really good today, we carried on to Waters Edge CP where some had been reported this morning but again we drew a blank, we ended up having a little look around Far Ings, all the usual culprits here but no sign of the recent drake Smew. Late afternoon found us at Worlaby Carrs where several Short Eared Owls entertained plus a Marsh and Ringtail Hen Harrier went through.
