Kilnsea Wetlands

I had a nice morning on Kilnsea Wetlands and Beacon Ponds yesterday.

The target bird was the reported Slavonian grebe and I thought that the cold weather might have induced some movement with possibly more interesting wildfowl a possibility.

I arrived before dawn to clear skies and small dusting of hail and the temperature hovered around zero.

Nothing of interest around the car park so I made my way to the hide. From there I could see the grebe at the east end so made my way to the screen.

It swam into the bay and showed well but the light was poor hence iso 2500 and no detail.

It was pretty uneventful around Beacon Ponds save for some nice photo opportunities of birds in flight.

All in all a nice morning out in the cold fresh air.
