I have ,anaged to visit a couple of places this weekend,the first one a sensitive site but needless to say I got decent views (but no shots) of my 2 target birds woodlark and meadow pipit.
The second place was Spurn on saturday I spent some time in the hide at canal scrape and the yellow wagtails proved to be very obliging as was the black redstart at sandy beaches.
Second visit on Sunday wasn't so successful as a cold north easterly put a dampener on things.
It was a good weekend for firsts of the years and wheatear, willow warbler, swallow, sand martin, yellow wagtail, black redstart, buzzard and water pipit were all added to the list.
Some strong south easterlies wouldn't go amiss during the week.
