East Coasting ….

Just come back from a week by the East Coast. I had hoped to see more wildlife, especially at Gibraltar Point NR, but here is a selection.

Linnet10

We had several sightings of linnets. I had no idea that they were so colourful.

Reedbunting30

This male reed bunting was singing his heart out on the top of a bush.

TreeSparrow30

It was a surprise to see a tree sparrow. This was at a reserve more famous for seals called Donna Nook about half way between Mablethorpe and Cleethorpes.

Avocet31

On a showery days at Gibraltar Point we were delighted to several avocet families with chicks and an oyster catcher with a couple of young. I couldn’t get any decent photographs in view of the conditions but you might be able to make out two avocet chicks sheltering under a parent from the rain with another trying to get in.

    At the Measham farm, the only sparrows we saw on the bird food were tree sparrows. On moving to Heather, we only saw house sparrows. Odd?
