Spurn area

Mag, Simon and I arrived at the obs at lunchtime to meet up with Christian. It was deathly quiet but we persisted in birding, enjoying the local Tree Sparrows if nothing else. A Marsh Harrier quartered near Sammy's Point, where a Rock Pipit called, a Whimbrel was along the edge of the Humber and a few Snipe flushed. The usual other waders were about, including flocks of Golden Plovers. A seawatch produced three Little Gulls, Shag and a trickle of Red-throated Divers, Sandwich Terns and Common Terns. Good numbers of Kestrels were around.
