Still not many migrant passerines about
Had a quick trip down to Hartlepool Headland and Saltholme today afterwork, there 6 or so Red Throated Divers well out to see amongst the Guillemots and there were also some young Gannets diving just off Parton Rocks, on the rocks there were Knot, and Purple Sandpipers amongst the usual waders of Turnstone, Redshank and Oystercatchers.
Down to Saltholme there were Pectoral Sandpiper, Snipe, female Garganey still, Shoveller, Gadwall, Widgeon, and Teal.
A sparrowhawk kept buzzing the lake and strangely flying very slowly over it, scattering the small ducks and waders each time but never attacking anything, it did this 3 times landing in different bushes each time. Manage a nice photo of it, but a branch spoilt the composition.
