Today I checked out the first Wednesday venue after Easter to see if I could work out a suitable circular route that would take approximately two hours. Unfortunately, I didn't locate it. Not that many birds had returned yet, but there was a nice encounter with a confiding Yellowhammer and a Reed Bunting.
On the way back I stopped off at RSPB Blacktoft Sands, as I'd heard about 3 Garganey that were present. They were visible from Ousefleet hide. There had been quite a bit of flooding, so Marshland Hide and Xerox could only be reached in wellies.

Quite a few waders were also present including Black-tailed Godwits [only 2 had some colour], a few Ruff of various sizes, a pair of Oystercatchers and some Lapwings. I also spotted a Knot, which may be the only one I've seen at that location.

Avocets were only present at Marshland hide after walking through water higher than ankle-deep.
