Nice Collection

Grey Wagtails

2 adults and 1 juvenile are now regular occupants of the Chevington Culvert.

Grasshopper Warbler

A couple of Grasshopper Warblers have started reeling again.

Barn Owl

Early morning stretch.

Agapeta zoegana
Sulfur Knapweed Moth

Common Darter

Lots of these medium sized 'dragons' emerging now. I keep checking but still haven't found a Ruddy one.

A few days back I got quite a shock to see a Banded Demoiselle high over East Chevington. I decided to take a couple of trips to Ulgham Grange where I have seen them before. Sadly no luck but a Dipper was a nice surprise.

Terns agitated



It headed east across the north pool before following the shoreline south. For once it was good to get the info to APr at Newbiggin and even better that he connected with the bird! A small repayment for all the birds he sends north from Newbiggin.

Not sure what went wrong with the power station this morning.

Ringed Plover

Adult and 2 juveniles at Cresswell. Guess the adults bred nearby, perhaps Bells Farm. Cresswell was host to a good selection of other waders; 2 Spotted Redshank, Common Sandpiper, 6 Knot, 6 Turnstone, 20 Dunlin, 40+ Black-tailed Godwit and a Greenshank among the most notable. 10 Little Egrets, Spoonbill and 2 Little Gulls added to the morning list.
