April 24th 2011

With work commitments over the last few wks iv'e not really been able to get out with the camera so any spare time has been used to catch up with local summer migrants,but with news of a potential British tick (A bogey bird of mine) in the form of Purple Heron in Lincs i decided to have ago (Having dipped so many i was less than optimistic) Having picked Andy Jones up at just gone 7 we headed upto Huttoft Pits,Lincs on arrival we were met with the dreaded words no sign,with the hide being full i stepped out only for the call to go up i dashed back in but to late the bird had dropped back into the reeds! Bugger or words to that effect i stepped back outside only for the bird to fly past giving superb flight views as it flew across the water towards the back of the pit where it gave distant but cracking views for at least 1/2hr after getting a few record shots we headed upto Tetney Lock for the 5 Dotterel which were present with 1 a stunning female in full breeding plumage but sadly to distant for any kind of shots.
