Hot.

Well,the weather was,the birding not so.

At Freiston a wigeon was an unusual bird for mid July.The ever present barnacle goose looked a bit sad.There were a few waders around but nothing outrageous.

Frampton was much better.Butterflies everywhere,my best sighting a marbled white,very nice.Searched for wood sandpiper but no luck,bit of a bogey for me.While looking I did see:

Black tailed godwit c500,mostly sum plum.     4 or 5 green sandpipers.       2 common sandpipers.      Spotted redshank.        6 ruff.      20 dunlin.      Brent goose.      Marsh harrier.     Yellow wagtails.
