Spoonbill find

A wander around Deeping Lakes was typically quiet this morning. The large colony of Lesser black-backed and Herring Gulls seem to put off most waders, which is a shame since the habitat is great. I was heading back to the car when I these two 1st summer Spoonbills appeared on the East Pit. Must have dropped in whilst I was walking around the rest of the reserve.

Typically, they were only on the site for about an hour before heading off south-west. Only the second time I have seen Spoonbills on the reserve after Pop's and I found four better plumaged birds on the 13th May 2016. Again these were early morning and brief!
