Saltholme hgihlights on Wednesday:
Raptors: little owl seen by the sheep shed, short eared owl over Phil Stead reed bed, long eared owl on usual branch at Haverton, sparrowhawk on post at Phil Stead, kestrel at various locations and merlin hunting, then resting on the grass at Saltholme.
The long-tailed duck was on the Visitor Centre Lake - look towards Paddy's and the black necked grebe was showing well at Paddy's.
Over 30 species were seen at Saltholme including 1 ruff, 2 redshank, 4 snipe, 4 dunlin, 8 black tailed godwit, 80+ golden plover, 4+ pintail, 2 stonechat, goldfinch, pochard and lots of lapwing, shoveler, gadwall, teal and wigeon. Little grebe were in many locations with a great crested grebe on the visitor centre lake. There were lots of Canada geese and greylags, plus around 80 barnacle geese. As I drove off towards Billingham, a huge flock of startlings was flying over the road towards Haverton.
Thanks to all the very helpful birders for their sightings.

Wondered whether the mumurations had started again as I watch a 100 or so starlings heading for Saltholme on the way home from work on Seal Sands yesterday afternoon? Guess it was confirmed this morning at 08:10, whilst sat in the hell of another jam on the A1185/A178 roundabout due to an unofficial picket, when several thousand came out of the reed beds opposite the Fire Station, crossed the roundabout & landed in the fields around the Brine Resevoires! Fantstic sight!
