Today I thought a trip to Pennington Flash as we hadn't been there in a few years! We started off at the scrape where we had been lucky with Snipe before. We were told that a pair had just passed right in front of the hide and into the undergrowth (probably heard we were coming!!) They did come back and were pestered by the Lapwings.

We armed ourselves with a map and ventured out. After an initial tarmacked path we turned to the right up a narrow slightly overgrown pathway where there were lots of Snapdragon-like plants with bees crawling in and out of.
