Another weekend and all attention is over at Spurn with its migration festival in full swing.
Cheshire still has the mega wader but its done a dirty on us and gone down the M6 to Sandbach for the flashers to enjoy.

Heres another piccy of the boy...

Out this morning hoping to find something (like I should have done last week ..doh!!)
The Ruff flock (6) from Haydn's Pool and one of the Green Sandpipers seem to have moved down onto Neumann's Flash and were briefly joined by a passing flock of 4 winter plumaged Dunlin  before they were spooked by a Sparrowhawk. Probably the same bugger that flushed the Stilt Sandpiper to Sandbach.


Out and about en route shopping and doggy duties so I nip into the flashes and checkout Malc's just found Wheatear and find two cracking Whinchats sat up on the middle fence across desert like Ashton's flash..get in!! the Wheatear was there as well.

Sorted as we say in Mancunia! we should hold our own Migration Festival what?
