Far Ings 8-12-12

With the first chance of getting out birding in 2 weeks,Jacqui and myself set off for Far Ing in nice warm sunshine,we walked the Humber bank cutting down into Barton reedbed we could see hundreds of Redwing and Fieldfare flocks striping the hawthorn berries,with the sun in our faces we walked along Far ings road towards Reeds Hotel giving us a better chance of some photo's.We reach hotel road but I was soon distracted by the trill of Waxwings feeding on the berries but even better was that they were coming down to the puddles of water in the road to drink but each time they did they was disturbed either by joggers or cars.
With time pushing on and we had to rush back to receive our car back,but with out wasting time we took it out for a drive and were soon back at the Waxwings,where we was met by Mandy,Darren,Tony & Carol.
We offered Mandy and Darren a lift up to Chowder Ness but didn't stay long a good job to because along Far Ings road thousands of Starlings had gathered in the Hawthorns and we stopped the car to see ourselves in the middle of a massive murmuration and what a brilliant experience it was.
