Broomhill Birder


Hi All,

a trip out to the coast proved hard work with the target bird a Subalpine Warbler not showing but a few waders and a Roe Deer deciding to flush everything at the West Lagoon hide at Gibraltar Point in Lincolnshire and also a run to Whisby Nature Park was very rewarding with excellent views of a Nightingale.

On our way round the reserve there were lots of Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Blackcap and a very obliging Nightingale which made the day!
