Yesterday, two Little Stints were reported from Thornwick Pools, Flamborough but I was otherwise engaged, so decided to give the pools a look this morning. Initially I was concerned as the pool held very little - Moorhens, Mallard, Teal and a Dunlin.
I decided to move on but as I walked towards the car park, an approaching birder informed me he had just seen two small waders fly low towards the pools. Returning to the hide -YES - Two Little Stints! Unfortunately, they did not stay long and were seen to fly high over the old farmhouse.
The Red Backed Shrike, however, kept it's distance!
Nice to see but only "record shots"!
Some great birds, and much as I love Gannets, it was nice to have a change!
It was also good to meet up with Nick and Helen (from Rugby) for coffee and a chat as they enjoyed a brief break. Good luck in your future ventures!
