Nene Washes

I reckoned there was a good chance of picking up some Whimbrel along the Nene Washes today, so I buzzed up there at lunchtime. There is only time to walk about half the drove in a lunchtime and I found out later that there were Whimbrel further along, as well as a few Avocets. Still I was pleased with a little party of three Wheatears (a male with two females) and the Black-tailed Godwits (both the local breeders and the passage Icelandic birds) are always entertaining.
