Winterton Dunes: ten miler for very little!

Brian and I made an early start at Winterton North Dunes, but despite walking most of the way from the village to the Nelson's Head track, all we found was a few Redstarts, Whinchats, Pied Flycatchers and a flighty Wood Warbler: no sign of any Red-backed Shrikes or Wrynecks. We also glimpsed a probable Hippo, but it refused to be photographed!

Lots of commoner raptors, including five Buzzards and a Red Kite together (distantly!)

Admitting defeat, we returned to good old Strumpshaw Fen, where the day's tally was augmented by Great White & Little Egrets, Kingfisher, juvenile and adult Common Tern and a Garganey (probably!)
