All Quiet on the Eastern Front

The forecast last night was for easterlies, so I thought I'd see if any migrants had been blown in to Spurn.  There was one Wheatear along the point, and another on my return to the point car park but otherwise there was very little to see.  

At Canal Scrape I could hear a Yellow Wagtail, but couldn't see it.  There were a few Meadow Pipits and a Reed Warbler, but the best bird was a distant Green Sandpiper.  I waited quite a long time & eventually it flew quite close to the hide, but only remained a minute or so before flying off again, and headed off towards the canal
