Cleethorpes Boating Lake 05/11/2012

With the Purple Sandpiper not staying more than one day at Covenham Res, I felt it would be a waste not to take advantage of some nice light. So I took the camera down to Cleethorpes Boating Lake for 2 hours and rattled off some shots.

Purple Sandpiper 04/11/2012

A text from Dean Eades alerting me of a Purple Sandpiper at Covenham and I was on my way without a second thought. Arriving in dire light with Mark Johnson already on scene. The Purple Sandpiper showed really well just a shame about the light conditions. A Lincs, Year and Covenham Tick for myself, so I was well chuffed. Also 1 Grey Wagtail and 1 Male Goosander.
