Got an hour break, so I've time to complete the weeks activity.
To finish off a fortunate week I popped down to Kilnsea Wetlands yesterday morning to try for the WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER. As I approached the hide I noticed a Birder scanning the site through the blind.
It turned out to be Frank Moffat. He told me he had the bird in his 'scope and would I like to have a peep (sorry). The bird was no more than 30yds away feeding with c40 Dunlin. I also had a brief view of a Wood Sandpiper. I'd seen him many times over the years but never had a chat. We discussed various topics before we left...including Footy. Nice bloke.
Now then...I "wander" where that ALBATROSS is...
