Barrow Haven 23-4-11

With the sun up we couldn't quite decide on where to go today,but did decide on going to Barrow Haven not to far away well 6 mins on the train seems i had never been there and Mandy hadn't been for some time.
We headed for the 1st hide and open up a front flap to have a Female Sparrowhawk fly straight at us,if we was a minute earlier Mandy could of had time to nail it.
Other birds included
Little & Great crested Grebe
Grey Heron
Marsh Harrier
Ruddy Duck
Tufted Duck
Common Whitethroat
Lesser Whitethroat
Sedge Warbler

Has we walked round this small reserve we reached the Humber bank where we stopped for a bite to eat and drink.Shelduck where on the foreshore and Swallows flying around,a Yellow Wagtail flew overhead
and at least 2 Porpoise could be seen breaking the surface of the Humber which was good.
After a hour or so we headed up Barrow Lane to see if any Yellow Wagtails were in the paddocks but no luck,with The Haven Inn over the road and the sun beaming down we decided on a cold drink where we bumped into some of Mandy's family.
