A visit to Filey Dams yesterday afternoon and from the main pool hide (hope I have the right name) two Greenshank were at the furthest most point of the pool out front of the hide. Fortunately they began moving around the edge of the pool anti clockwise and went around the front of the pool in front of me. One then flew off but the other bird remained and came fairly close.
We then moved to the other hide and after all the birds on the reserve went up a Sparrowhawk sailed by and I missed it with the camera. A Little Stint was very distant and then we had a treat of three Ruff out front which I will post tomorrow.
A great hour. We then popped into the still newish Tesco's in Filey next door is the library. As we drove passed three or four police officers had a guy handcuffed, I wondered if it was the murder suspect from Northumberland who has been on the run a week or so (why I do not know). Yep, national news this morning said he had been apprehended in N Yorkshire in a Library.
