Had a run out with Louise to Old Moor. BROAD-BILLED SANDPIPER reported then dis-appeared. No matter ...nice cafe!
We arrived had a bite to eat and walked down to Wath Ings hide...I know how to show a girl a good time! We'd only just sat down when the pager sounded to the news that the bird was showing on Wader Scrape. So, off we toddled and enjoyed good if distant views in the ever filling hide. Very lucky...not a Yorks tick but still a very rare bird. Sat on a bench watching a constant stream of birders arriving, quite a few of which I knew...hope you all got good views chaps.
Late news of 3 BEE-EATERS at Flamboro'...still time for some goodies.
Oh yes, nearly forgot,,,,....back to work tomorrow (about time I hear you say?)
