Gibraltar point, Lincolnshire UK (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Visiting realtives in Lincolnshire today so we decided to have a look around Gibraltar Point Nature reserve, run by Lincolnshire Wetlands Trust. The area is mainly saltmarsh and very different from my usual surroundings in Surrey.

The Birds were few and far between beacause of the awful weather I guess but in addition to the usual subjects (Oystercatcher, Redshank, Black Headed Gull, Ringed Plover, Pied Wagtail and several Meadow Pipits) we had a first - a superb Montagu's Harrier - a female hunting over the saltmarsh. Made the whole day, including getting soaked, well worthwhile!

Took the Kids to Yarrow Valley CP this am (07.00 09/07/08)
Nothing spectacular Jay. Grey Wagtail. Robin, Wren, Black-headeds, mallard. Blue Tit and the tiniest frog no bigger than a thumb nail that the eldest lad nearly trod on !!

Evening of the 8th had a number of swifts and house martins, Gt Crested Grebe and Nuthatch amongst others. We also caught yet another fleeting glimpse of a Kingfisher crossing the reed beds.
Great place for my boys to learn binocular use and for me to bone up after years of only occasional birding!!
