Red-backed Shrike, Kilnsea

Another day at Spurn with this red-backed shrike in the meadow behind the riding school....until the heavens opened ! Had a good catch up and gossip with Dave and got a few trips in the pipeline for next year. Bring on retirement (3 weeks to go) as really haven't time to go to work anymore !

Jack Snipe, Canal Scrape, Spurn

Jack Snipe from the Canal Scrape hide, Spurn 

Quite a few yellow-browed warblers still around today. This one was in the garden of Cliff Farm and there were a couple in the Crown and Anchor car park.  Never still for a second.
An excellent day where we didn't stray too far from the car as the showers were sudden and heavy! Lets hope for another fall of birds tomorrow. 

Citrine Wagtail, Spurn

Straight infront of the Canal Scrape hide, couldn't wish for more.

This little weasel was running round at Sammys, never still for a second. What a handsome chap.

Local Bearded Tits

One of our favourite birds. We are so lucky to have such huge flocks of these locally, and at this time of year, with favourable weather, they are so easy to find and watch.

Spurn bits

Meadow Pipits 


Yellow Wagtails 

A lovely day at Spurn with plenty of birds to see. Lots of yellow-browed, a couple of firecrests and a barred warbler were the highlights. This is better than being at work......... !

Lucy and Lee

So happy for our beautiful daughter Lucy, who got engaged to Lee last Friday night. A romantic meal for two at Bibbi's in Leeds turned into a proposal. The ring is absolutely gorgeous. We wish them years of happiness together xx
