Alkborough Flats, Cherry Cobb Sands, Sammy's Point

Alkborough Flats, Cherry Cobb Sands, Sammy's Point on Saturday 10th October 2020. It was a cold wet day to start with, low laying fog or mist covered most of the land around Alkborough Flats in North Lincolnshire. For the first couple of hours we didn't see a thing but as the day progressed things started looking up.

By the time we got to Kilnsea and to the back of the church it was a bright sunny day. We were there for a Yellow Browed Warbler in the cemetery, we could hear it but we could not see it in the dense bushes. Two Goldcrest paid us a visit and went immediately into the same bush, they kept hoping out but too fast for me to get a photo.

All the time we could hear the Yellow Browed, but no sign, even with six of us looking.

We moved on to Sammy's Point just up the road, now bathed in sunshine and looking promising. Large floats of birds were coming in off the sea and flying north up the humber. Linnets below and the Stonechats above were just some of them.
