Saltholme highlights from a windy afternoon included 32 species from Saltholme hide and 21 species from Paddy's.

Best birds were probably 7 pintail (males emerging from moult and looking increasingly impressive) on Saltholme West, and brief views of a merlin as it flew past the hide (I didn't see it use the "usual" post today, not sure if it was put off by the wind or nearby cattle). Also good numbers of golden plover, and a couple of snipe on the VC lake.

Non-bird sighting: a small tortoiseshell butterfly near the Phil Stead hide.

Tawny owl heard last night in Cowpen Bewley village, first one I've heard for two years in the village. Let's hope it's our newest resident.

A grey wagtail has recently started paying regular visits to my garden (I dug a pond at the end of August, and it typically spends up to half an hour feeding on insects and larvae). I was wondering if anyone else in the area (NW Billingham) is getting similar visits?
