Outside of Area....
For those interested there has been an Alpine Swift which has roosted on the railway tower block at Harrogate for 2-3 nights, we watched it leave from the building at 7.30 ish to fly. It flew over the bus station and spent part of the day flying around east parade. If you go looking for it where it roosts it has been on the top left corner of the window frame ( top left of building ) .. This is dark in colour so hard to pick out. View from railway station car park or near bus station exit.

Back Garden - 8.00am - Brambling x6.

Dormans Pool - track to hide - singing Wren x3, Grey Partridge x3, Meadow Pipit 6-7, Linnet x2. Water Rails calling from front left of hide. Stonechat pair by bottom car park.

RSPB Saltholme - Great Crested Grebe x4 pairs, Sand Martin x3 by visitor centre checking out holes in the colony wall. Brent Goose x1, Barnacle Goose x8, Pink-footed Goose c.7-8 at Paddy's Pool. Meadow Pipits just about everywhere now.

Had a quick look around the Phil Stead Hide whilst finishing touches were being made. Looks very nice inside and out. Sounds like they're just waiting for insurance confirmation and maybe open for use in the next day or two - possibly even tomorrow.

No sign of any Waxwing at Longfellow Road the couple of times I've been past today.
