We could only see part of the peninsular.
A pair of little grebes were fairly close to the hide and kept diving for food.
We then had a walk around the area and saw a redstart, blackcap and closer to The Warren a yellow browed warbler. On our later visit to the hide we had excellent views of a redstart. The bird would flit down on to the ground and catch an insect and then we could see its orange-chestnut tail quivering up and down, before the bird flew back into the bush.
Kilnsea wetlands was our next port of call, where we saw four mute swans, but no sign of a bewick swan, that had been there earlier in the week. The mist was rolling in on the far end of the scrape, so we thought that it would be pointless walking to Beacon Ponds. Our next port of call was Sammys Point,however Chris read his pager and news of a red breasted flycatcher came through so we returned to Beacon Lane. Here we joined lots of other birders, and managed to see the bird through a telescope.So back to plan and off to Sammys Point. On our way back to the car we saw a speckled wood butterfly and watched as it flew into a spiders web and the spider started to eat it.
The visibility had improved and we could see quite a lot of the estuary. The tide was still a long way out so not many birds to be seen on the mud.
We had good views of a yellow browed warbler but could not find a barred warbler that had been seen earlier. A small flock of goldfinches landed in a bush nearby.
The bird was difficult to see and moved quickly, however I managed a couple of shots.
A nice bird to see as it makes its long flight back to Asia. We then set off for home. Thanks for another good days birding Chris.
