Me & Bill headed north east again to Spurn just to see what was about. Hopes were not to high with the forecast as it was. We took a detour just off the m18 to lakeside as the day previous a Slavonian Grebe had been showing well, it did not disappoint on arrival. Spurn seemed to be alive with common migrants as before Whinchat Wheatears GS pecker Meadow pipits, Redwings and Redstarts were all around the canal area. At the point we were lucky enough come in contact with the Great Grey Shrike although it was only in flight. I dropped on lucky with 5 Snow Buntings before they headed across the Humber. Merlin hunted the area, well there was plenty to go at. Siskins Ring Ouzel, Willow Warblers, Redstarts,Blackcaps, Lesser & Common Whitethraots, Spotted flycatcher & Robins everywhere. Sammys point was rather quiet except Wheatears, Tree Sparrows, Reed Buntings & a lone Yellow Wag. Humber held the normal waders Grey & Golden Plovers, Sandling, Dunlin, Barwits, Redshank ect. Plenty of Little egrets about too enjoyable day but i do love the place.
