Mon 15th Aug

After visiting the Frampton and Freiston area on a Monday for the last six weeks, we headed for a different part of Lincs today just for a change. Plenty to see.

Seawatching beginning to get going, wader passage continuing to pick up. Bushwacking for migrants slow, but should be better soon.
