Swillington Ings

Saturday 15th April a.m.
 I had a run out to Swillington Ings this morning where it was 9°C but feeling bitterly cold in the strong Northerly wind.There were plenty of birds around but most kept their distance meaning not too many pictures today.It was good to hear a Bittern booming again and to see three Black-necked Grebes, there were c100 Sand Martins flying around with c 250 BH Gulls.Other birds seen were Gadwall,Pochard,Redshank,Lapwing,Oystercatcher,Read Bunting,Linnet,Goldeneye,Gt C. Grebe, Skylark,Wigeon and Wren.
