Filey Surf Scoter 29th June 2013

Well it has been a while since I have been out birding , working Monday to Friday now at Countryside Products making Suet Trays for the birds . So with the weather being nice we decided on a trip up to Filey to see if we could get the Surf Scoter , reported on Birdguides .  When we got there we had a gorgeous young Sand Martin perched up on a gate , I was so chuffed I have never seen one so close and also Richard had his camera so I was back to my 300 lens , so it was excellent for it to be so close :)  Richard put his hand out to it and it just hopped onto it , was amazing to see  .  We took loads of photos then walked down the cliffs to the Brigg there were a few birders around and we spotted the Surf Scoter amongst some Common Scoter , it was a bit far out to get any decent shots but managed a couple of record shots .  It was a gorgeous day I just love the coast .  Another lifer for me thats 196 now  :)))))

Far Ings Monday 3rd June 2013

Wow what a stunning morning it was,  I got up at 5.30am and was up at Far Ings NNR for 6.00am . I had my flask and some breakfast with me . I went into Ness hide and it was amazing the water was so still and the sun shinning , not a cloud in the sky :) . Lots of activity this morning with the Reed Warblers sitting out , the Marsh harrier was out and about hunting . I sat in there for about 3 hours just watching everything , and taking loads of photos . After I went for a little walk around the reserve as it was quite cold sat in Ness , when I got outside it was lovely and warm , I had a really enjoyable walk around and filled up my SD card LOL :)
