Blacktoft Sands

Sunday 6th September
A bright sunny day which we made the most of by having a trip out to Blacktoft Sands near Goole.
There was good numbers of ducks with Teal & Wigeon into the hundreds with others including Gadwall,Shoveler,Mallard,Little Grebe & Pintail.Also a selection of waders with Snipe being the most numerous, others were Lapwing,Black-tailed Godwit,Redshank & a Green Sandpiper.We saw three distant Water Rails at the edge of the reed bed with one showing really well for a short time.A Grey Heron was fishing & we counted thirteen Little Egrets which all made for a good day out rounded off by watching the Tree Sparrows on the feeders.
