Saltholme RSPB 21/03/17
A cold windy but bright day but 10 species of duck were still present in smaller numbers. Both Paddy's Hide and the Wildlife Watchpoint were still being improved and therefore large areas of the reserve were not observed. Still over 50 Tufted duck were seen as were 3 Goldeneye, 2 Pintail, 12 Shoveler and a mobile flock of over 40 Teal. Wigeon numbers were still in 4 figures. 7 Barnacle geese still remain but are split into parties of 5 and 2. Also 7 Great Crested Grebes were seen as were 5 Little Grebes. The only summering waders present were 3 Avocet but in addition 24 Black Tailed Godwit, 140+ Curlew, 2 Ringed Plover, 2 Redshank and 9 Oystercatchers were also seen. A Sparrow Hawk and Kestrel were seen hunting for most of the day. Thanks to the Hide Guides and members of the public for the information contained in this report.

This afternoon's Saltholme highlights.

Chiffchaff reported singing near Phil Stead hide (more reported as being around the Haverton end of the reserve); otherwise relatively quiet but with a decent mix of waterfowl.

From the re-opened WWP, highlights included pochard, great crested grebe, little grebe, water rail, little egret, kestrel on the fence posts and a female sparrowhawk taking a great tit and eating it in full view of those in the hide.

Thirty-odd species observed while spending the last 45 minutes at Saltholme Hide. Obvious highlights included 2 barnalce geese, 2 red-breasted mergansers, at least 7 goldeneye (3 displaying males), a couple of pintail, little and great crested grebes, a few black-tailed godwits, and a pair of oystercatchers. Earlier visitors apparently saw a merlin from the path to the hide.

Thanks to all contributors for the additional sightings.

I have just spotted what i think k is either a ibis. Or Egrit. In the Saltburn valley gardens. Wading in the water, picking small fish out. Have some photographs to show.
