Recreational Birding

Kite Surfing not really getting off the ground.

The windsurfer was a little more successful. Oh the joys of birding Widdrington Moor. I'm considering this for Chev with my telescope and camera mounted on the 'mast'.

The real birding was much more productive. No sign of MH's Black Redstart at Hauxley, however, the wagtail/wheatear field at Hadston was well worth a thorough checking. A YBW at DBCP gave good views in the sycamore near the car park. (Sadly it was nowhere to be seen when BB arrived.)

East Chevington still awash with birds. (Thanks to NWT for the dry summer.) Waders included Grey P, Golden P, Knot,Turnstone, Ruff, Dunlin (all shapes,colours and sizes), Ringed P, Curlew Sand, Snipe and Redshank. 1500+ Pink-footed Geese and a few Pintail amonst a good selecton of common wildfowl.

A sizeable Reed Bunting flock also contained Yellowhammer and 4 Tree Sparrows.

A Good Days Birding!
