First visit of the year to Spurn today, we've all been doing various management work tidying the warren repairing the heligoland etc. Nathan and myself were busy putting a new fence in the church field around the pond so the sheep can graze right to the waters edge which will hopefully make it more attractive to pipits and wags.
Because of all this work I didn't get much birding done but had Merlin and a cracking drake Pintail go over and had the Whooper flock at sammy's
A birder originally from Wakefield West Yorkshire, now living in Beverley East Yorkshire. I mainly bird Spurn but do get around to other sites in the county. I'm pretty keen on my Yorkshire list (hence the name) and am currently on 377 which puts me in joint ninth place. Recently I'm more and more interested in self finding birds rather than twitching them which is good cos there aren't many county ticks flying around these days. I currently sit on the YNU record adjudication panel and the Spurn bird observatory committee.
