Sunday 28/7

Another visit to ARC Hanson hide to try and see the Little stint was another dip. Wood Sandpipers were again in evidence and a delight to watch. Little Ringed Plovers again present with Common Sandpipers and a couple of Dunlin. a distant Godwit was seen and assumed as Black Tailed. Bird of the day was a summer plumaged Black Necked Grebe which stubbornly stayed as far away from Hanson hide as possible. This brought back memories of a BN Grebe seen in Majorca a few years back which was extremely tame.  
Informed of a drake Fudge duck at the Mipitts, This is an area I have yet to explore so a followed others to the site. A walk along the Shooting ranges gave up Shelduck, Skylark, Avocet and Kestrel but no sign of any ducks fudge or other.  A pleasant birding area and worth another visit especially in winter.
