Humberston - Tetney....Sunday 28.04.2013.

After visiting Grimsby this morning i decided to travel the short journey over to Humberston and walk all the way up to Tetney sluice and back.I saw some nice bits,the best of which was a stonking male Redstart sheltering from the blustery south westerly wind.He was watched in flight and perched on 3 occasions before disappearing,what a lovely bird!.Along the same area of bushes and up to Tetney 10 Whitethroat,20 Swallow,2 Common Buzzard overhead and 5 Whimbrel were seen and another first for the year was seen at the sluice at Tetney,3 Common Sandpiper 'Teetering' along the shore there.They gave nice views,a lovely bird species and i always enjoy to see them whether in the uplands or on migration along the coast or wetlands.On the yacht club pools,a single Sand Martin hawked for insects and a couple of Drake Wigeon showed brilliantly along with a single Dark-bellied Brent Goose.A nice few hours,with a change of scenery.
