With the big news being a Great Snipe at Spurn,E.Yorks on the Sat night & speaking to Archie who was wanting to go but not able to drive due to a double hernia op a few days before we made the decision to wait for news on the Sun morning as the weather reports were not good!! A 7am txt saying the bird was showing had me quickly up showered,dog walked & parrot sorted & on my way to pick Arch up! A good run up & we were soon watching this superb bird down to feet which must be the best views ever had of a Great Snipe in this country & best of all a welcome lifer for both of us!!

Went back to Alvecote Pools today my 3rd trip in as many days! Still 5 Black-tailed Godwits present but so much more flighty & with the light not very good only stayed an hour or so..............

Nothing planned after a week of nights but a txt from Adam Archer telling me he had 11 Black-tailed Godwits at Alvecote soon had me gathering my equipment & heading over!!! Showed very well at times but the light was tricky to say the least...........

Headed over to Frampton Marsh,Lincs this morning to meet up with Dean Eades to discuss a trip early next year & to have a look for the Wryneck after setting out from the carpark & getting some general info on the whereabouts we set off! Wasn't long before i picked up the 1 bird on the bank which then proceeded to give us the run-around for most of the day a second bird was also seen in the area which was more confiding but would not come out into the open spending all it's time in deep cover!! A good day for the craic but not for pics..........
