Killingholme, 8th October 2020

 

A long but engaging day on the south bank of the Humber, where we're resuming our surveys throughout the autumn and winter (having resumed those on the north side, at Paull, last month). Over the bridge early this morning between walls of rain and juggernauts; back over the bridge this evening as the sky glowed crimson and the rush hour ebbed. Inbetween? Four figures of Black-tailed Godwits (above), hundreds of Dunlins, Avocets (below), Redshank, Lapwing and Teal, lots of Curlew, Snipe, Knot and other waterbirds, plus close-up Marsh Harrier (below) and lots of Chiffys (bottom) and Redwings in the scrub along river. It's good to be back.
