Springing northwards


Straggling line of 26 Hoops went over while looking (dipping) Lurps at The Gate.

Decent selection:-
32Snipe, 9Redshank, 6Oystercatcher, 74Lapwing, 68Golden Plover, 280+Curlew, 1Heron, 4Mallard, 4Teal, 1Shoveller, 12Shelduck, 2Greylag, 22Mipit.

A pleasant warm afternoon with gulls taking flying insects (it was uncomfortably hot and muggy as the sun first broke through) & i waited an hour for Jimmys LRP to return . . .

No luck, but more than happy with my earliest Swallow (114) which circled before moving on north with 2Sand Martin.

Tried this different camera on macro setting through the scope -




Will keep trying. Had just got the knack of the old one before it packed in !
