Weekend Wandering.

Saturday started off with Pete and I heading for Branston Gravel Pits. Two Wood Sandpipers had been reported on Friday and we hoped they were still there. It didn't take long after our arrival to start picking out various waders. 11 x Curlew, Little Ringed and Ringed Plover, Dunlin, Ruff, Green Sandpiper, Common Sandpiper, Redshank and eventually we spotted the Two Wood Sandpiper thanks to a fellow birder who located them and called us over. They were too distant to photograph but we were both pleased to have seen them.

Took a couple of snaps on the walk back to the car.

Sunday morning and I decided it was about time I revisited the Moors. It's been a while due to how quiet the birding has been during the nesting period, combined with how overgrown certain areas had become. The fields have now been cut and access is again much easier.

There is nothing new to report bird wise, but there was a lot of bird activity. Highlight of the morning was probably a very good looking juvenile Willow Warbler.

I took a few pictures and Taz and I enjoyed the walk.

A few pictures of the Moors this morning.


And finally, a bit of experimenting with camera angles.
