Coast of Lincolnshire

Had a day along the coast of  Lincolnshire first headed to Freiston Shore right on the edge off the wash filled with lots of waders with Oystercatcher, Dunlins, Lapwings, Turnstones, Redshanks being the highlights. Also overhead still lots of Brent Geese still on the wash coming in and quite a few Common terns hunting and a nice sight to see a big flock of Tree Sparrows near the car park.

Next headed to Frampton Marsh a wonderful RSPB reserve always a good place to see a few of my favourite spring migrants and again it was the case with Yellow Wagtail, Wheater around the cow fields and Little Stint, Red and Greenshanks, Wood and Common Sandpipers showing around the scrape. Also around where lots of Little Ringed Plovers feeding and maybe trying to setting up nests, Corn Bunting along the wires and Sand Martins taking advantage of the bank. The real hightlight of the day for me though was watching the hares out on the marshes just going about there lives such wonderful animals.
