Saturday 15th of August 2009

This is late as I didn't have a Blogspot on Saturday so your going oto get the report now.
Went out with fellow DBC freinds: Stew, Derek, and Andrew.

Seaton Snook
First of all we went to Seaton Snook and there was large numbers of both Ringed Plover & Dunlin. A few tern species knocking about including Little Tern. The highlight of Seaton Snook had to be the summer plumage Grey Plovers. Here is two of them (if you have good eyes)
After the very pleasant Grey Plovers we made our way back to the car in the now horizontal rain and 300mph wind.

Saltholme RSPB
Just the usual birds at Saltholme here today apart from Greenshank and Ruff.

Calor Gas Pools
The pools held some good birds on the day: Dunlin, 3 Ruff, Greenshank, Redshank, and 3 Black-tailed Godwits.

Blackhall Rocks A nice flock of Common Scoter was a great end to the day at Blackhall Rocks. Also from here we had a few Gannets offshore.

A great end to the day.
