Filey Country Park








Knot





Redshank





Oystercatcher








Turnstone





Dunlin





Curlew


Common Gull








Grey Partridge
Another cold rainy day and I new it was high tide so i decided to drive through to Filey Country Park hoping to find some waders on the fields pushed up by the tide. When i arrived the fields were covered with large numbers of Oystercatcher, Redshank, Turnstone, Dunlin, Knot and a few Curlews for good measure. I used the car as a hide and got very close views (plus stayed dry, apart from my camera lens) with the birds coming as close as a couple of metres.
On the way home i dropped in to the Blue Dolphin to see if the Snow Buntings were still present but no sign of them, as i drove out of the main entrance of the Blue Dolphin i found a flock of 10 Grey Partridge sat in a field feeding away in the heavy rain (bonus).
