Mellow Yellow

Posted on 25 April, 2017 at 10:50

First day of the bird watching class's summer course today.  Summer? There was a whistling North wind that made 'long johns' the order of the day. However we were rewared for our persistence.  Lots of Avocets on Cresswell Pond with a really bright Yellowhammer on the boardwalk as we approached the hide.

Near the causeway were the first Wheatears of the season and from the hide at Druridge Pools we saw a vagrant Green-winged Teal.  All the usual suspects were there too - including: Shoveler, Red-breasted Merganser, Snipe, Pintail, Gadwall and 5 Little Egrets.

The real bonus was a very good view of a Yellow Wagtail.

Julia and I lingered a bit after the class dismissed and saw Sand Martins and a Common Swift.  A pair of Reed Buntings also posed for the camera.
