A leg to stand on

Nightshift sleeps interrupted with noisy school kids on holiday - a quick glance at the phone and news of a Stilt Sandpiper at Cresswell. Bingo.

As far away as it could be, but a cracking county second, and a momentum keeper given yesterdays pratincole!


iPhones at the ready...




Ouch.... it gets worse....

Courtesy of LiverB, garganey today, again at Arcot. No sign of the scoter but that perhaps was not expected. A water rail made a brief appearance though...

Cramlington action...

Caught up with Barn Owl at West Hartford this week after many failed attempts over the last two...

A greenshank on Thursday was good too - WH looks good for waders.

Saturday morning was call about seeing stuff others had found earlier - so I take no credit for the first Cramlington record of Common Scoter at Arcot, Shoveler and  Dunlin at Northumberlandia...
