More waders!

Started a days surveying at North Killingholme with my first Sandwich Tern of the year flying over my car as I crossed the humber bridge. Almost unbelievable that it has taken until now considering the time i have spent at sea...

The survey was steady with plenty of returning waders including a Common Sandpiper on the beach and a flyover Little Ringed Plover on the pits plus a 1st CY Yellow-legged Gull roosting on the foreshore. Oh and hundreds of Black-tailed Godwits. Obviously.

Went ringing yesterday at Tophill and got a ringing tick with Treecreeper plus we managed our first Coal Tit with a juv. A family of Long-tailed Tits and a number of juv Willow Warblers made up most of our catch of 20 or so birds.
