herewith the Slavonian Grebe on Hotel pit at Barton 19.11 and one of the two Twite on the Humber bank near Far Ings 20.11---the latter would have been in better light had they not been flushed for 10 mins by a dog walker throwing a branch over them as I photographed the birds---verbal restraint was excercised but only just!

this very confiding Purple Sandpiper at Covenham was not only beautifully lit by the sun but the background water even looked a nice deep blue--it had adopted a small hole in the concrete bank where it was sleeping---it only flew for about 5 seconds so getting a flight shot was a real bit of luck
