Freezing Narrows

The temperature indicator on the car plummeted as I headed coastwards early afternoon from balmy Beverley - to what became almost a shiver at The Narrows, Spurn early evening.

The best of the observations from The Narrows 16.00-18.00 included:- 87 Brent Geese, 4 Tufted Duck south, 16 Sanderling (walked north along the beach), 2 Little Tern, 2 Razorbill south, 66 Swallow south, 2 House Martin south, 1 Sand Martin south, 1 Wheatear north and a Whitethroat.

In dull conditions, the best of the photos was this Sanderling at the end of Spurn Point. The grey of the sea mirroring the colour of the sky!

Stopped off at Welwick in search of the Purple Heron but no sign by 7.30pm, though 2 Little Egrets brightened the grey conditions.
