Waters Edge CP 7-3-11

With the afternoon being bathed in warm sunshine Mandy and myself decided to head off for
Waters Edge  which is run by the local council to see what we could find
after a 10 mins walk we reached the visitor centre looking for the female Stonechat
with no luck we continued along the Humber Bank towards Barton Pits with the large colony
of Tree Sparrows still busy on the feeders in a private garden.A quick scan of the shore line
we picked up Redshank,Dunlin & Curlew on reaching Barton Pits we soon viewed lots of Goldeneye and Pochard but only the Female Long-tailed Duck keeping her distance but after a short break the Male appeared further out.A quick walk to the back entrance of Waters Edge we was soon onto a flock of Lesser Redpoll with closer inspection 2 Mealys were revealed a nice year and county tick.After 10 mins or so a Cettis Warbler blasted out in song with only a short view of it but was good enough for another county and year tick.
Other birds included Siskin,all usual waterfowl,2 Little Grebe & Stock Doves
