Highlights from Saltholme on Saturday. Phil Stead hide was the main draw with a number of Waders. The three Pectoral Sandpipers still present with Black-tailed Godwits, Ruff, Redshank and Dunlin. At the Watchpoint the Water Rail was showing to visitors with Marsh Harrier around in the morning. Paddy's is now quieter now that the Common Terns have gone (a few still present on the Visitor Centre lake) but a Snipe was present and the Black Swan being chased by a Mute Swan. At Saltholme Hide in the morning Yellow Wagtails, Pintail & Egyptian Geese were observed. The Wildfowl and Lapwings numbers increasing.

Saturday 2nd 0900 Hilton Road between Hilton and Seamer, on the boundary with Hambleton.
Female hen harrier rose up from a fence post and flew off in a south easterly direction.
Although flight seemed quite laboured it was easily distinguishable by its white rump.

I've been told that the tees barrage is a good spot to see a kingfisher. Is this correct and if so any particular spot? It's becoming an obsession of my eldest and I to spot one but everytime we go to Saltholme we miss it! Any help appreciated

10.00am this morning- My Mum spotted a Yellow Canary (completely wild) feeding on our Sunflower hearts in our back garden (Fairfield, Stockton on Tees). This bird flew in with a Goldfinch, fed with it and flew off with it as well.
