At Greatham Creek I saw the Semi Palmated Sandpiper another first for me, also 1 possibly 2 Short Eared Owls quartering the area to the south of Greatham Creek.

- I have been digiscoping for around 18 years now and through persistence and good equipment I am getting great results. I use a Swarovski 80hd spotting scope and a Sony RX100 camera which has just replaced my old faithful Nikon P5100. The majority of my bird watching takes place in County Durham in England which has a variety of different habitats from coast to moors. Digiscoping is great because it allows me to get good photos without disturbing birds. VIEW THE LATEST PHOTOBOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

Went to Saltholme to try and spot the Purple Heron that has been around - no luck though, and I just missed out on a flying Bittern by 20 minutes - typical. The male kestrel was hunting around the Phil Stead hide again and landed on the posts right in front of the hide.
