Blue-Headed Wagtail found by myself at St. Mary's in April.
Cracking Bluethroat found by Nick Dales, huge lifer for me, and at St. Mary's again!
WOW. Look at that. No words can describe how good this really was. BRIDLED TERN on the Farnes. Big thanks to Mike Hodgson and Gary Woodburn for gaining me access to this bird! Found by Will Scott, beauty.
One of my all time favourite birds, Corncrake from North Uist.
Dotterel found by me and my dad on Cairn Gorm in May, class.
Firecrest at St. Mary's, another lifer and long overdue! Well found by John Malloy and Phil Allott.
Impressive Beasts. Golden Eagles on North Uist.
Great White Egret at Druridge Pools to complete the 3 Egrets in one year in Northumberland!
Hawfinch at Sizergh Castle, another species I have been chasing for a long time and caught up with for the first time this year.
Hen Harrier on North Uist, always fantastic!
Very narrowly missing out on Bird(s) of the Year!! 2 IVORY GULLS at Seahouses Golf Course found by Gary Woodburn initially, simply incredible!
Pallid Swift at Hartlepool Headland, found by Simon Parnaby, a record up for discussion but happy to have it myself!
Cairn Gorm Classic! Ptarmigan at the Ski Centre.
Grip-Back! A bird I have missed 11 times before this one, Red-Backed Shrike FINALLY seen at Seaton Sluice this year, found by Nigel Tinlin. Also had one at St. Mary's later in the month!
Female Scaup on St. Mary's Wetland found by myself, later on saw 4 on the sea.
Siberian Stonechat at Howick, been desperate to see one for years now, and got 2 in 2 days with the North Yorkshire bird the day before!
Western Bonelli's Warbler at Hartlepool, very good NE record!
A year wouldn't be complete without these beauties, Yellow-Browed Warbler at St. Mary's, another good year for them.
