I’ve said this many times before, but Frampton Fen is one of my most favourite RSPB Reserves. There’s always a good selection of species and plenty of birds to go through.
A Caspian Tern had been seen on several occasions in recent days to my visit, but alas it wasn’t at the reserve on my arrival on 12th July.
Three Spoonbill and 3 Ruff were my only year ticks, but 30 odd thousand roosting Knot was a very impressive sight, as was the several hundred Black-tailed and Bar-tailed Godwits. Greenshank, Dunlin, Golden Plover, Lapwing, Avocet, Oystercatcher and Little-ringed Plover were other waders I saw whilst wandering around the reserve.
A really obliging Sedge Warbler gave me plenty of opportunity to take a few snaps.
I’m sure I will be back at Frampton before too much longer.
