Whisby Nature Park 30-4-13

Today we decided on going to a new reserve about a hours drive,Sun was out so it was a nice hot day for us
a look around the visitor center something Far Ings could do with looking at.
We worked out a route which would take us to the furthest end of the reserve enable us to work our way back,but it was not to be only a few minutes of starting our walk we bumped into my old friend Dave Hutton and Dean Eades,it wasn't to long before Jacqui was viewing her first lifer of the day in the form of Nightingale which I love to hear.
We stayed around hoping for some photo's but not a chance so we continued around the other lakes and found a Black-necked Grebe which gave some cracking photo opportunities,Jacqui's second lifer of the day we headed back to the Nightingales for another chance of pics but again they didn't want to play ball,after a while we headed back to the car for a coffee and food by this time it was getting on so Dave and Dean decided on calling it a day but we decided we had a hour left on our ticket and would use it in the hope the Nightingales would show and was we glad we did.
A cracking day with some great company.
