WAY­MARK­ERS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1Wide vis­tas over the man­aged re­align­ment site should re­veal feed­ing waders and wild­fowl with finch flocks and singing Sky Larks in sum­mer; al­ways watch for vis­i­ble mi­gra­tion over­head, in­clud­ing in­com­ing flocks of thrushes in late au­tumn.

2Views over Grainthorpe Marsh should pro­duce sight­ings of Lit­tle Egrets, hunt­ing rap­tors and gulls. The small grass field is worth check­ing for mi­grants on the fence­lines, like Wheatear and Whin­chat, and the banks have feed­ing pip­its with Rock Pip­its around the pools in win­ter.

3Pye’s Hall has lit­tle in the way of trees and bushes, so mi­grants are of­ten easy to see, but stand away from the bushes and scan care­fully. An Os­prey of­ten sits on the white posts out on the fore­shore in au­tumn.

4Look out over the mud­flats for flocks of Brent Geese and waders, in­clud­ing large num­bers of Golden Plover and Dun­lin. The car park bushes can be a mag­net for au­tumn mi­grants, in­clud­ing Gold­crests and war­blers. bird­watch­ing.co.uk
