Green Sand

Another freshwater wader on the beach with a Green Sand calling and eventually alighting briefly on The Links beach before towering high and disappearing south, nice. And another species that I am struggling to recall seeing on a beach before.

Back at the ranch a mid afternoon cup of tea outside was rewarded with a flock of twelve Blackwits drifting in from the east into The Shunan. A male Hen Harrier went through the garden hunting, but that was about it

"That was about it", my how you forget your life in the bird impoverished South Pennines :) We would love some Blackwits and a male HH.

Long forgotten days, Nick.... Parcel post, tracked delivery?

Hopefully not too long before we can look forward to some quality east coast birding, just found out a Crane went south over Morningside this evening. The house is getting quite a list thanks to reports from vis mig watchers at Filey, hope it continues once we get there.
