Blashford lakes Yesterday

Here is a quick review of yesterdays birding at Blashford lakes ( fab place! ). First port of call was the Tern hide, Little ringed plovers and lapwings with chicks were on the shingle, Common terns rested on the wooden platforms, Greylag geese were floating around with the Tufted ducks, Canada geese, Dabchicks, BHGs and Great crested grebes.

Next up was the Ivy hide which produced nothing ( had Bittern here a few months ago ).
The woodland hide produced more with suberb views of Nuthatch, Jays, a lovely female Great spotted woodpecker and the more common Tits and finches.
The other hides didnt hold a lot, except for some Sand martins breeding and a Weird looking Wagtail ( in the process of id ing ).

Tonight i am going looking for Nightjars at Ferndown, so I will let u know how i get on :)
