I was out again Thursday and with a forecast for showers I thought I’d better do places with Hides, I decided on the morning at Blacktoft Sands although it proved rather quiet, it did stay dry though at least until I was returning to the car for lunch, highlights were the Harriers as always and a few Bearded Reedlings were flitting around. I moved on to North Cave Wetlands in the afternoon but spent most of the time sat in the Hide watching several Common Terns fishing over the Main Lake in a rather prolonged heavy shower, unfortunately no Black Terns or anything else dropped in, when the rain eased I checked out the new Dryham Ings area where there were several pairs of nesting Avocets and a pair of Little Ringed Plovers with a chick.
