Frampton Marsh, Sandbach and Marshside

Lots of good birds at Frampton Marsh, Lincolnshire today, inclluding at least three wood sandpipers, three drake garganey, curlew sandpiper, little stint, spotted flycatcher and several species of warblers. On the way home we stopped off at Elton Hall Flash, Sandbach for a look at two summer plumaged whiskered terns and then continued to Marshside to see a glossy ibis.

Year: 219 (Whiskered tern, glossy ibis, spotted flycatcher, wood sandpiper, curlew sandpiper, little stint). This time last year I was on 211 and in 2014 I was on 229.

 Lapwing or even peewit, but it's a lot more than just a green plover!
