Frampton Marsh

Tuesday 9th August a.m.
  We have been on holiday this week to the East coast in Lincolnshire, while we were
there we visited a couple of fairly close RSPB Nature Reserves. The first one we went
to was Frampton Marsh south of Boston, the weather was dry and sunny with a strong
breeze blowing, the temperature was about 14°C. The first bird we saw here was a
Little Owl perched on a Kestrel bird box, we saw many other birds although they
were often along way from the hides making it difficult to ID some of them or get a
good snap. We did see a Ruff for the first time and were surprised to see Little Egrets
out numbering the Grey Heron.
