Recent Sightings

I haven't been posting for a long while now because I am bunged down with revision and exams! But in between revision sessions, I have been managing to get out so I'm just going to do a post on all recent sightings since my last post (so not really very recent at all!), these are:
Spotted Flycatcher on Holy Island

Marsh Warbler at Hadston Carrs
Gorgeous Little Stint at Newbiggin

I'ev also just returned from St. Mary's after a fantastic seawatching session, 8 manx shearwater past, and 2 adult BLACK TERNS! A brilliant lifer for me!

Third time lucky!

I've managed to dip the long-billed dowitcher at Saltholme twice now, but today I finally nailed it at Greenabella Marsh! Showing for only 15 minutes, this gorgeous bird was another lifer for me, and a very rewarding one at that!
A record shot of the beautiful yank!
