On behalf of the 22 people who turned up for a tour of Hartlepool Headland, I would like to thank Chris Sharp who tried hard to find the birds but unfortunately things were very quiet. Still the air was fresh and the company good.

As far as I'm aware they work Saturdays.
Place is always awash with Gulls.

Do any of the tips work on a Saturday? Just a query as I was going to come through to look for the Glaucous and Iceland Gull but not much point if the tips are closed. Thanks in advance.
