It was a quiet morning at Ferry Meadows CP ‘vis migging’, though the NW winds held a bit of promise. Sometimes NW winds can bring birds from the North Sea/The Wash, cutting across the wind. At lunchtime, I drove down to a viewpoint along the River Nene at the Dog-in a Doublet (the name of a pub by the sluice gate here; the sluice marking the western limit of the tidal Nene).

The best I could muster, which is not to be sniffed at, were a couple of the Cattle Egrets on the RSPB Nene Washes in the far distance.
