Dean Martin? Steve Martin? Chris Martin?

No CRAG MARTIN!!! omg :)
Set off for Flambrough head at 2:30am :0 and arrived at first light, 15 cars were already in the car park along with a few familiar faces, Joe and Alan had arrived 1/2 hour before me, we stood around having a bit chat waiting for the bird to appear which had roosted on the cliffs below the night before. We waited for about 1 hour before the bird appeared which put on a good show flying around the cliffs showing really well before flying off :) happy days lifer number 1. Next was a trip along the cliff top further south for the Tawny pipit which Joe and Alan had already pinned down for me ;) cheers, lifer number 2 in the bag Tawny pipit :) this was only a British lifer as iv'e seen them in Nepal, then for my second dose of Crag martin action as the bird flew past the Tawny pipit location not to be seen again. After my fill of Crag martin i took tilly on a walk around the head before having my m&s cheese pasty with a nice flask of coffee :) what a great day, so i decided to take Tilly for a splash in the sea at Filey, she loved her play in the water. Then i was off on the shortest twitct ever! the pager beeped and there was a pair of Garganey at Filey dams nr, i put the location into the sat nav and 3mins 10seconds appeared on the screen :) lol. when i arrived the birds were showing very well in front of the hide allowing some canny shots aswell, i decided to have a little sleep before setting off back for home, once again canny day with some cracking birds seen, roll on the next twitch :)
