Back to basics

Had a walk down Beacon lane last night. The weather is improving and we managed to avoid the heavy showers.

Not a soul in sight as I took the new permissive path towards Kilnsea Wetlands. The pool in the meadow hosted the "resident" Brent Goose. At least it had some company with the Greylag flock. I then noticed some movement in the distance through the long grass. The distinctive jizz of Whimbrel came into view. I used to see them fairly regularly in the lower Derwent Valley but it was great to find a couple on my new patch...
