Went to Frampton Marsh in Lincolnshire on Saturday in hope of connecting with the recently reported Baird's Sandpiper. Though the bird was gone it was not a wasted journey. The birding here was fantastic, particularly the waders; represented by 18 species, that I recorded. Bird of the day was the best look at Wood Sandpiper I have ever had. Other birds of interest were Merlin, Little Egret and Marsh Harrier. Photos were taken through my scope with Iphone.
Waders: Oystercatcher, Avocet, Little Ringed Plover, Ringed Plover, Grey Plover, Lapwing, Knot, Curlew Sandpiper, Dunlin, Ruff, Snipe, Black-tailed Godwit, Common Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper, Wood Sandpiper, Redshank, Turnstone, Spotted Redshank.
