Far Ings NNR 5-8-11

With an early morning visit planned the alarm was set for 3am, after breakfast and cuppa to wake us up we set off around 4.30am. En route we saw a Fox and a Kestrel.
The reserve was quiet on the whole, best bird was a Hobby that flew through Ness Pit area heading towards Chowder Ness.
A kingfisher made an all to brief visit. Other birds of note were Black Tailed Godwit, Lapwing, Reed Warbler, Water Rail, Curlew and we had c120 Sand Martin through. The Tufted Duck which had 2 youngsters now only appears to have one left :(
A couple of photos of the Kingfisher are on my Zenfolio site.
