A nice sunny day on Sunday and I
thought a trip out to Spurn would be the best bet, unfortunately there had been a big clear out
overnight, however at least one male Red Backed Shrike remained at Sammy’s and
eventually showed well, but the Thrush Nightingale that had been seen and heard
first thing had then stopped singing and wasn’t seen thereafter which was a shame, I know it wasn't a poser like the Hartlepool bird but it would have been a Yorkshire tick, it was just a
potter around after that, the Triangle was fairly quiet althoughthere was a nice family party of Common Lizards by the Canal Scrape Hide and a walk out to Beacon Ponds for a Curlew Sandpiper found a good number of Little Terns present, nice to see the colony doing well again, the Sandpiper had been flushed though, late afternoon found me back at
Sammy’s photographing the Shrike and a posing Cuckoo again.
