Myself and 2 friends back in April 2015 seen a Red-Backed Shrike on the edge of Crompton Forest/Moor hunting. They are breeding here however in the SW but you never know.

Saltholme sightings 13/07/12017
A really lovely sunny and warm day with lots to see. Two visitors reported 68 species including green woodpecker and great white egret at Dormans and curlew sandpiper on the wet grassland. The latter in fine summer plumage later turned up alongside 60 Dublin on Saltholme west. Saltholme also had 6 little egret, 6 black-tailed godwit, one each of ringed plover, little ringed plover and common sandpiper, a peregrine, 2 oystercatchers along with the black swans still in residence. Wildfowl numbers were low with a solitary wigeon and teal, and greatly reduced numbers of shelduck and gadwall. On the other hand, lapwing numbers are well above 50 now, a sign of things to come.A kingfisher spent a bit of time in the morning on posts in front of the Phil Stead hide, and the watchpoint is still good for hearing and seeing sedge and reed warblers. Apart from the peregrine already reported, a kestrel seen hunting from Phil Stead was the only raptor noted. Thanks to the hide guide colleagues, estate staff and visitors for making this an enjoyable and fruitful bird day.

while climbing out of Castleton yesterday afternoon (Langburns Bank) there was a small red (orange)backed bird flitting its way up in front of me, may have been a red backed shrike.

managed to seek advice from a sea angler today re photos I had taken of the shoal of fish yesterday. He was excited to confirm them as Mullet and said that he personally had not seen any in the area for the past three years. I wonder if they could have been what the dolphins followed into the area earlier in the week ?

Wednesday highlights at Saltholme:
Sunshine at last and the path down to Saltholme was busy with meadow pipit, whitethroat, sedge warbler, reed bunting and reed warbler, while visitors watched dragonflies and damsel flies on the dragonfly ponds.
39 species were seen from the Saltholme hide, including 1 little gull, 1 marsh harrier, 3 kestrel, 2 black swan, 11 little egret, 6 great crested grebe, 2 little grebe, 6 oystercatcher, 20+ gadwall, 2 shelduck, 6 wigeon, 10 tufted duck, 4 little ringed plover, 1 ringed plover, 2 common sandpiper, 9 black tailed godwit, 2 curlew and 5 pied wagtail.
The great white egret was reported at Dorman's and a few shoveler were resting up at Phil Stead hide. The visitor centre lake held around 5 little grebe, 8 tufted duck, 4 great crested grebe and 1 oystercatcher.
Two visitors were lucky enough to see 1 barn owl feeding a juvenile on top of the barn owl box.
There are around 200 pairs of common tern on the islands and some of these already have chicks which are almost adult sized.
Thanks to everyone for their sightings.
