CAMBS: Ouse Washes

24th April 2011

Jim kindly offered me a lift to the Ouse Washes to look for the long-staying Blue-winged Teal. Unfortunately the birding Gods didn't take kindly to me leaving Norfolk, firstly hiding said Teal, and then dropping a spring male Citrine Wagtail in North Norfolk. We spent a quite a while in Welches Dam Hide looking for the Dam(n) Teal, but it was not to be. We had a brief look from another hide before returning to Welches, and did see Greenshank, LRP and Yellow Wagtail and heard a Gropper, but it was clearly not to be.
