Down Teeside


Had a good day down Teeside. We first went to Greatham Creek to see the Twite and we had them on the rocks really close by. Fantastic view! It was a life tick for me! Also present where two Brent Geese.

We then headed onto Saltholme and as we arrived at Bottom Tank we had Water Rail and also a Jack Snipe! The Jack Snipe was a life tick for me as well! Water Rail was a nice year tick, I didn't think I was going to get one this year.

We headed to Blackhall Rocks where we had 8c Velvet Scoter and 1000+ Common Scoter. 1 of the Velvets was a fantastic drake in great plumage.
