A trip out to Frampton Marsh RSPB in Lincolnshire and Snettisham RSPB in Norfolk for two rare waders. The Pacific Golden Plover at Frampton Marsh and then the Western Sandpiper at Snettisham. Lots of other waders were seen at both reserves including Little Stint, Curlew Sandpiper and Wood Sandpiper. No pictures unfortunately of the rarer Western Sandpiper that was always moving too quick with the incoming tide. Masses of birds at both reserves!

Snowy Owl

The Snowy Owl showed well at Snettisham RSPB today. Did not think I was going to see it when it was not seen at Thornham early on but luckily it was re-found at the end of Snettisham RSPB reserve late morning. I was therefore able to see the bird and get back earlier enough to take my mum out for Mother’s Day.
