The first proper arrival of Wheatear at Burdon Moor, with 10 scattered about. 2 Willow Warbler were singing along the bottom path and yesterday's Ring Ouzel eventually showed in the top fields.
A trip up to Derwent Reservoir was fairly fruitless, but the long staying Long-tailed Duck was still near the dam.
After lunch I headed to Teesside with news of a Great White Egret. As I arrived at Dorman's Pool a low flying helicopter had flushed everything, but luckily the bird was just landing as I pulled up. Good, but distant views were had. Also here was a Little Egret and a couple of squealing Water Rail.
