Becoming Common

There is an awful lot of luck associated with 'birding'.

Standing on the causeway scanning waders (Lots of SP Grey Plover still around.) when I noticed a bird to my left.

Common Crane

I think over the last 10 years I have seen a Crane every year. They rarely linger and most often they are seen passing over the county. So I was delighted with this sighting.

Same picture heavily cropped.

Holy Island was disappointing; cold, windy and wet. 3 Little Egrets at the causeway and a SEO were the other highlights of the morning.

Mostly Newbiggin

Not Sure about this one. Might be Pheasant's Eye (Adonis annua) if so probably a garden escape.

Sea Milkwort?

Having left twitter the best site I miss is BSBI always helpful and quick to give positive help with plant ID.

Dingy Skippers
(third time lucky)
Thanks AP

I think this is a dingy Dingy Skipper.


Love NWT

This Horse Handler managed to flush all the breeding Lapwing a sitting Shoveler and a sitting Mallard.

This photographer had a good view over the ponds. Hopefully he got some good pictures.

Not sure about this Weevil.

Best Guess ...
Common Leaf Weevil

Waiting for Rain






A Very Quiet Holy Island (Fri)

North Pool


Then the rain came! Thanks to GS for the find and AP for the text. Sadly my  mobile had  a battery fail and I couldn't get in touch with anyone all morning. Still I'm not blue?
