A Couple of Hours at Far Ings NNR 24/4/12
I decided on a couple of hours out on the reserve as the sun was shining. I knew it wouldn't be long before the rain moved in so I took a chance. I was delighted to have a confiding Swallow perch up for me near to the visitor centre. I was also watching a flock of 4 Linnet in the car park area, everytime I approached, typically, they were off. So I lay down on the grass behind a picnic bench and waited patiently for them to return, which they did! Other birds of note were Marsh Harrier, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, Avocet, Oystercatcher etc and a couple of Common Tern.
Later in the evening we had a nice drive out to Worlaby Carrs and enjoyed good, if distant views of SEO. I didnt manage any photos of them but pulled up in the car to photograph a perched Meadow Pipit.
