Water Pipit

I got the Water Pipit at Whitburn Steel this morning, feeding just below the cliffs with 15+ Rock Pipit. Very dark and murky this morning, so no chance of a photo.

I should have had some cracking shots when two Sparrowhawk landed to fight over some prey, but even with the ISO at 1250 the action is just a blur.


  1. Nice battle,even a Peacock watched on. ;-)

  2. You still catch something special.
    Look at both sets of eyes in the first image. NASTY.

  3. Hello there.
    I was wondering if you knew of any areas where little owls are seen around the burdon moor.area. I've seen 1 which was on a sign post going down to lamesley from sunniside but that's while I was in the car, also are any other species of owl apart from tawny seen in the area? I havn't been out much lately has much been showing in gateshead lately?
    Cheers rich.

    1. Hi Rich, I've not had Little Owl at Burdon for a while, but have had one or two on Pennyfine Road out of Sunniside. There is a good chance of a SEO at Burdon as there seem to be a lot more in the country compared to last year. Cheers Rob

  4. I'll have to keep an eye out for an SEO.
