As I took my seat in the hide at Cresswell the Stilt Sandpiper dropped in to give excellent scope views. also here were 9 Ruff, 2 Wood Sandpiper, 7 Avocet, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 7 Common Sandpiper and 16 Snipe. A young Marsh Harrier drifted through.
A trip up to the Derwent Reservoir produced little except 14 Goosander and a few Buzzard. A few Common Hawker and butterflies were in sheltered areas.
An evening trip to Shibdon and the first Little Egret of the year had dropped in. This morning's waders were still present, but now 2 Greenshank.
