Saturday 30th August.
Had a good day around RSPB Saltholme and Dormans Pool area today, the raptors put in a good show with 2 Marsh Harriers, Common Buzzard, Peregrine, Sparrowhawk, and Kestrel all seen within 1 hour. On the RSPB reserve I just paid a visit to the wildlife watchpoint and saw another Sparrowhawk, 5 Little Egret a Dunlin and 2 Ringed Plover and 2 Gadwall. There were lots of Yellow and Pied Wagtails near the centre and seemed be making the best of an insect hatch on the water. Met a nice couple from Darlington and had 4 people showing an interest in my digiscoping set - they were all impressed.
