A late start after calling in to work. Cresswell first where there were 22 Little Gull and 50ish Black-tailed Godwit. At Druridge a Spoonbill was feeding in front of the south hide and my first Dark Green Fritillary of the year was patrolling by the road.


At the point at Hauxley a brief seawatch produced a few distant Roseate Tern taking food back to Coquet Island.

South, via home, to Derwent Reservoir failed to get the reported Temminck's Stint, but there were 4 Common Sandpiper, 5 Ringed Plover, 3 Dunlin and a Little Ringed Plover.

A tea-time trip to Kibblesworth Brickworks gave an Emperor Dragonfly, Emerald Damselfly, Four-spotted Chaser, Common Darter and Common Blue Damselfly. Loads of Ringlet and Meadow Brown with a few Large Skipper and Common Blue. Plenty of Five-spotted Burnet were feeding by the path.

A late trip out before a curry gave a Kingfisher at Lamesley and a Long-eared Owl on Ravensworth Fell.
