The Linc's Coast..


A further continuation of yesterdays efforts to try and get some more year ticks under the belt,saw Dave and myself heading for Covenham and then onto the coast at Donna Nook.A good selection of birds were recorded through the day,with several highlights,the best of which were the 2 juvenile Great-northern Divers and female Velvet Scoter at Covenham,with a supporting cast of Peregrine,2 drake Scaup and 7 Goosander and at Donna Nook,Peregrine,2 Merlin and a superb adult female Hen Harrier.Also at Donna,were large numbers of Fieldfare with at least 1000 birds recorded!,830 Dark-bellied Brent Geese and 8 Pale-bellied birds.Also here at Donna were some great encounters with the resident Grey Seals,with a couple of grumpy pups posing for photo's.An excellent day out again!!.
