Day out on the Lincolnshire Coast

On Saturday decided to head for Lincolnshire as the tides were for a good high tide first stop was Gibraltar Point a nice sunny but windy morning brought had quite a few butterflies with my first Wall of the year along with good number of Red Admirals and Common Blues. On the scrape was lucky enough to see a Spoonbill pretty close up my best view of this species feeding in with the Little Egrets, Redshanks, Godwits and the odd Greenshank and flying through were a good number of Swallows and Sand Martins guess autumn on the way.

Then headed to Frampton Marsh doing a bit of the Hedgerow area first had a nice Munjac Deer feeding by one of the small pools and a quick view of a Grass Snake but was amazed at how many Speckled Woods there were down this short hedgerow. Then walked the long way to the scrape from the visitor centre which gave me the advantage of finding a young Yellow Wagtail. Then had a nice session in the 360 Hide with 2 more Spoonbills, Wood Sandpiper, Little Stint, Spotted Redshank and a good number of Avocets the highlight from the hide before heading to the wet marshland where I had a lovely Glossy Ibis along with a showy Sedge Warbler.
