Frampton Marsh - waders etc

Frampton was an hour away from Ouse Washes with hopes of the White-rumped Sandpiper returning? (having flown off at 10:30). We stuck it out for a couple of hours from 360 hide to no avail.....

There was a Glossy Ibis close to the hide, sillouetted into the light .....




And plenty of waders (15 species), mostly distant but some within range of my 100-400 zoom lens. 100's of Black-tailed Godwit!


Avocet including this juvenile....


Ruff of all sizes and plumages - an adult male feeding in front of the hide.....




Plus this obliging juvenile female.






There was one more year tick too - Curlew Sandpiper (251) and where was this? Yeah, half way over the scape like all the other decent waders of late!



The other waders: 3, Spotted Redshank, Redshank, Common Snipe, Ringed Plover, Little Ringed Plover,  Dunlin, Common Snipe, Knot, Greenshank, Common Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper and Lapwing. Not a bad haul for the day including the Ouse Washes birds!

A couple of days to catch up with things and then off to Cornwall on Wednesday with an appointment with the Scillonian on Thursday morning. The next post will hopefully be a sea bird feast?? At least I hope so..... Multiple pelagics here I come!
