Rewarding day ! 24th August,2023.

An extremely enjoyable day spent largely around or at kilnsea Wetlands and Beacon Lagoons or nearby.   A great variety of waders on offer (  Greenshank, Green Sandpiper,  Knot, Turnstone, Avocet, Ringed Plover, Ruff, Curlew Sandpiper , Dunlin, Little Stint, Bar tailed Godwit, Black tailed Godwit ) and additional goodies thrown in for good measure ( Garganey, Little Gull, ).

Later a Hobby zoomed south over our heads and gave tremendous views.

Locally the vast majority of cereal crops and oil seed rape have been harvested and some of the land even prepared for the next overwintering sowing. Some passage Wheatear and Yellow Wagtails have found the newly ploughed land attractive as have large numbers of gulls.
