Alone on the beach

Another day on the coast. This cool weather keeps folk at home so I had the beach to myself today between Kilnsea and Easington.

The Slavonian Grebe was still on Beacon Ponds, and remains to far away for a decent photo. Other than 700 Brents and 250 odd Wigeon not much else. The sea had lots of Red-throated Divers, a group of 32 were sat off Easington and a few more appeared to be flying past though I didn't partake in any seawatching.

Spent most of the afternoon playing with the camera taking flight shots of Common Gulls as there was nothing large and white among the Larids on the beach.

And this group of Sanderlings were rather obliging...

Wasn't much to blog about last Sunday's trip to Spurn. A skien of 102 Pink-feet flew in off and south over the Narrows while no Snow Buntings could be found at the Point. Elsewhere, Neil Hart had a Little Egret on Swinemoor Common on the floods.
