The circuit

Saturday 16th April 2016

Just the one hill today, but nothing doing much in terms of birds, a couple of Ravens and a couple of Mistle thrushes.Next stop on the circuit was Shustoke Res and judging by the birders around it was the place to be.The main focus of attention was a drake Common Scoter at the east end but there was also Common tern, Arctic tern, Little gull and a pair of Common Sandpipers. I didn't see the Arctic Tern. I finished the circuit with a walk round Caldecote but again nothing out of the ordinary apart from going arse over tit in the wettest, muddyest patch I could find. All in a days birding.

Common Scoter, Shustoke Res.

Little Gull
