Barn Owl hunting either side of North Tees level xing last night about 20:30, gave great views, flew right up to our works van, great sight whilst having a well earned cuppa. If anybody wants to get a good view of a Little Owl, take the Tanton road off the Stokesley to Stockton road and there is a tree so far down heading towards Great Ayton, we have seen it regularly.It even lets you drive right up to it without flying away.

Redcar linnets. They mainly feed on the niger seeds but do go on the feeder with sunflower seeds, they have been feeding for 3 days now between 3/5 at a time. they share the feeder with goldfinches quite happily. We have linnet young feeding as well.

Redcar east...linnets. We have had linnets, usually a pair, coming to the niger feeder for 3 years now. They often share the feeder with a couple of goldfinch. In 2010 they brought young. Haven't seen any young so far this year.

Thanks Ian, I have seen Buzzards before normally high up, the behaviour of this was not like I had seen before.

Chris, sounds more like a Marsh Harrier from the behaviour - two have been seen around the reserve and Dormans Pool over the last few days.

RSPB Saltholme - am - Little Ringed Plover x2 at Phil Stead Hide. Heron seen catching and eating a Moorhen chick. Little Grebe with chick still. Garganey drake reported there this afternoon.

Further to my previous posting RE Buzzard, it was hovering similar to a Kestrel but low to the ground, about 6-8 feet. I was driving so couldnt get a really good look, would this be a Buzzard or Marsh Harrier?

16.55 tonight coming out of Saltholme, Common Buzzard no more than 30 feet away low over verge side, great sight! Anyone else see it?
