    White speculum, barred or freckled plumage.

    Hi guys,

    these were digi-scoped ( at considerable distance)  at Frampton RSPB on sunday 22nd Aug.

    For those who don't know, Frampton in Lincs is the RSPBs new kid on the block. It's like a small flat, wild and woolly  version of Titchwell - big open skies and on the edge of the wash near Boston.  Free access, great hides and TOILET FACILITIES!  It's good for waders in spring and autumn and isnt that far from Freiston the RSPB high tide wader lagoon ( NO TOILETS! )

    Hi,

    Hopefully the web designers get to read this entry you made and consider making changes as it's pretty fundamental stuff.

    Once you've logged in, if you select a post already written, there'll be a 'new post' blue box to select. e.g. I can see one top right while I'm typing this reply to you.That's the way I add up new posts, but there may be other routes.

  • Thanks Rob.  Looks obvious now but I think I was expecting it to be 'new topic' at log in or something.

    I agree with you in thinking it should be.
