Saltholme Reserve Sightings
Although it was an overcast and damp day there were, a good variety of birds throughout the Reserve. All though Saltholme Hide was still closed to the public there were large numbers of Wigeon, Lapwing, Golden Plover and Shelduck, and Peregrine x2 visible from the screens. The hide is expected to 're-open on Friday 23rd to visitors.
All the other pools produced further large numbers of Wigeon, Gadwal, Teal, Tufted Duck, Pochard. The feeders Watch Point and Visitor Centre had Tree Sparrows, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Starlings all been harassed by a Sparrow Hawk at times.
The evening murmuration walk provided visitors with good views of this attraction, along with good views of Marsh Barrier, Sparrow Hawk, Short eared Owl and Barn Owl quartering over Haverton and the Nothern Reed be ds.
The Clarence scrub area produced a Solitary Long-eared Owl showing well to the visitors who braved the mud just past the boardwalk.

Saltholme today
After a dreary start a pleasant day was had unfortunely the Saltholme hide had teething troubles and remained closed, opening will be reassessed after repairs.
The lowering of the water level in front of centre has been appreciated by all
And diners were treated to a whooper swan during lunch along with the large number of Canada geese we had 7 white fronted and 15 pink footed.
Large numbers of wildfowl were evident but due to watery sun numbers and species were difficult to assess. Waders numbers were down except for the 1000+ golden plover on the causeway. It was an excellent day for owls all from Haverton old faithful Long Eared, Short Eared and Barn. On the raptor front we had Sparrowhawk and a pair of Peregrines on the ground at back Saltholme
Of the smaller birds 3 bullfinchs and 20 Fieldfares at Haverton.
Point of interest Martin Blick had a juv male Smew across the road near the petro plus tanks

Highlights from Saltholme on Monday a cold easterly wind chilly day (after getting off the A19) the Long-eared Owl was in its usual area from the viewing platform. Early afternoon one visitor flushed a Woodcock whilst walking down to the viewing Platform. A Peregrine was seen from Phil Stead as was a Merlin. Waders are starting to appear close to the Visitor Centre, with its designed muddy margins with Lapwing, Redshank and Black-tailed Godwit. Wildfowl wise Wigeon now very much in evidence, with the 100's of Canada Geese was one Pink-footed Goose.

A sunny and eventually warm day at Saltholme saw frequent spectacular flights of thousands of lapwing and golden plover rising up above Saltholme pools. At the other end of the reserve a long eared owl gave at least 50 visitors splendid views from the board work, and whilst watching this lucky observer saw one owl fly up and out of the scrub. Kestrel and sparrowhawk flew through the scrub, fieldfare were present nearby, and stonechat showed up well on the way up to Haverton. A pintail was present on upper tank, and the usual wildfowl were seen all over the reserve with shoveler particularly notable in number. Finally a good starling murmuration and roost with attendant sparrowhawk entertained visitors to the latest sunset safari..
