Far Ings NNR 25-8-11

A day spent there, just to relax around Ness Area, the Kingfisher showed briefly a couple of times without perching and it returned at last light and perched briefly. Otherwise it was pretty quiet, only the usual birds around. We had both male and female Sparrowhawk fly-bys and a couple of Magpies terrorising the froglets/toadlets.
Andy Sharp informed me of a sighting of Ruff on Pursuit Pit so we went to have a look. There were 2 Ruff there with the Lapwings and I managed a record shot before they all flew off to another area of the pit.
A quiet but enjoyable day out. The weather was ok, some sunshine but also cloudy.
