High Spoon.......

What joy, Spoonbill patch tick, maybe new record tick will check. The bird flew up from the mud just north of Gull Bank then headed down river to the Conder/Lune conduit where I scoped it again. Back on the patch a skittish Green Sandpiper was on the Flood along with a dozen or so Pied Wagtails with young, the adults still feeding them. Freeman's Pool saw Coot with young. In the fields I was pleased to see a few Rooks, a Buzzard overhead and on the marsh Greylag numbers increasing.

Brilliant spell of top birding down at the old patch there Steve - can't remember spoonbill ever gracing the parish before, but I may be wrong... wood sands, always a joy! What next I wonder?
