Saturday 13th April I made a visit to one of my favourite RSPB Reserves, Frampton Marsh, near Boston in Lincolnshire. A Long-billed Dowitcher has wintered at the reserve and had been showing regularly in recent days. The bird is now moulting into summer plumage, so was worth the visit.

Despite our efforts, we failed to see it, but did manage to find a few good birds. An adult Little Gull, a drake Garganey, several Little Ringed Plover, several Yellow Wagtail, 2 Sedge Warbler, a Spotted Redshank, some smart Ruff, 3 Pintail and thousands of Brent Geese. In all we had 65 species during the day.
