Forgot to say, both GNDs observed swimming towards the harbour entrance, so may well have left.

Hartlepool 1500ish: two great northern divers, single iceland gull and one glaucous gull (couldn't find second). Probable RT diver too but brief, distant views.

Most unusual bird Central side of Balls roundabout. Size and shape of a warbler but hopping about on the ground feeding like a robin. Olive green back no eye stripe or wing bars. Got me stumped but it's nearly been run over twice.
Also 5 x snow buntings on beach adjacent to Hartlepool Golf Course earlier

Wednesday highlights for Saltholme: Despite an unpromising start with high winds, bitingly cold, some good birding was had on the reserve with 40 species seen .
6 Waxwings were showing around the Visitor Centre and carpark in the morning. One was even visible from Saltholme hide (with the aid of a telescope).
A female Scaup was present on Back Saltholme, along with Pintail, and Goldeneye. There were 12 species of Duck on the reserve in total, but no Long Tailed Duck and Green Winged Teal which had been present on Tuesday. Large numbers of Wigeon and Teal as well as Lapwing are wintering on the reserve. A few Golden Plover were seen, perhaps they are all on Cowpen Marsh . There were 54 Dunlin, over 100 Curlew, and a single Redshank seen from the Saltholme Hide.
An unusual sighting from the Saltholme hide was a Song Thrush. Plus as I was driving home, a kingfisher flew over the road from the Saltholme reserve to the ditch on the Cowpen Marsh.
Thanks to Maurice and other observers.

Saw a Greated spotted woodpecker in Harburn, Stockton this morning, 9th January. Have not seen one before, and would like to know if there are many around.

Most mornings when I get to the barrage at around 7.30am, I hear one or more song thrushes singing; roll on spring!
