This morning, enjoyed the spectacle of a huge group of gannets fishing just off the beach between Saltburn and Marske, at least 100 and quite possibly more. There were also plenty of kittiwakes, herring and black headed gulls, adults and juveniles, sandwich and common terms, a few pairs of guillemot, small raft of scoter and some sanderling along the tide edge. And a seal!

Haven't seen it mentioned elsewhere, so I'll post it here. On Sunday afternoon (ca. 14:00), a green sandpiper was spotted on the small pool beyond Haverton Gate (i.e. the flash to the left after you go through the gate, if you continue stright on instead of turning right towards the Haverton viewpoint) at RSPB Saltholme.

Haven't seen them in the twitter feed so here are a couple of highlights from this afternoon at Salthome:

Great white egret from Haverton viewpoint, ca. 13:15; flew off around 13:45 and appeared to land in the pool to the west which is hidden behind the trees. Also, adult mediterranean gull, bathing at Paddy's, 28 black-tialed godwaits on Back Saltholme, and a single little ringed plover.
