Saltholme R.S.P.B (Thursday 25th) A Bright Sunny with slight Westerly breeze produced a good variety of birds throughout the reserve. At both Phil Stead and Fire station hides there were the usual Wigeon x c20, Lapwing x 20, Teal x 6, Curlew x 10 and Tufted Duck. Visitors who ventured up to Haverton Scrub and braved the flooded and very muddy area were provided with excellent views of the two Longed-eared owls roosting in their usual spot, along with a Kestrel hunting over the brambled area, which appeared to give the owls some concern as they became a little agitated. Also present were a solitary Great Tit, and Blackbird. On the kestrel trail there were Stonechat x 3, and a Weasel skulking in the grass before running over the path into the Wet Grassland
The feeding station at both the Watch point and Visitor Centre provided visitors with views of Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Tree Sparrows, Reed Bunting and Stock Dove. Main Lake had the usual Geese and waterfowl present, although there were no sightings of the Black Swan or Fieldfare or Redwing.
Once again Saltholme West and Back Saltholme provided the greater variety of species, out on the Grassland there were Curlew x 200, Wigeon x 1000+, Golden Plover 500+, Lapwing 1000+. On the ponds there were Red-Breasted Merganser x 2 Shelduck x 4, Gadwall x 6, Pintail x 10, Teal x 100, Goldeneye x 1, Shoveller x 6, Pochard, Tufted Duck, along the causeway there were Dunlin x 20+ Black tailed Godwit x 11, Redshank x 3. A small group of Linnet flew in and were feeding in the grass in front of the hide, There were no sightings of the Green-winged Teal until a Solitary Canada Goose shuffled off the water onto the bankside and flushed it out from a tussock of grass which pleased the many visitors present.
There were around 45 species in total sighted over the whole reserve throughout the day. Once again I must thank the numerous visitors and my colleagues Arthur Truby and Neil Hutton for their contributions of sighting.

Lunchtime today: a couple of hundred fieldfares were in the fields near the "speed bump" as you leave Cowpen Bewley village, heading south towards Haverton. Had a quick look for redwings among them but didn't spot any.
