Birds around Lincolinshire

Next stop was my usual visit to Frampton Marsh on the wash started off well with the Sun shinning brightly and Tree Sparrows and a pair of Bullfinches on the feeder first time here for the tree sparrows and flocks of Goldfinch chatting away and Yellowhammer and  Skylarks both singing around the car park. Out on the main reserve lots of Geese including quite a few mixed races and good Numbers of Waders with Dunlin, Ruff, Redshank, Little Egret, Curlew,Whimbrel and and both species of Godwits.

Overhead a good number of Swallows flow over heading south along with a Marsh Harries plus the local Kestrel, Sparrowhawk and Buzzard hunting over the scrapes. Walking back along the hedge had a lovely view of a Male Stonechat.

On route heading north stopped in at Gibraltar Point quite quiet with the hightlight being a Greenshank along with Curlew, Brent Geese, Redshank, Whimbrel and Grey Plover.

Then headed to Covenham Reservoir where a American Black Tern had been around for a few weeks and I was in luck as he still around though distance and was flying around hunting along with some other aircraft. Also around a very unshy Dunlin.
