Real Spring

Another stunning, blue sky day. An icy start, but 17c by mid afternoon, ideal. I didn't see a great deal, but it was superb to be out in the sun all day.

Started the day at Cresswell, where the Dowitcher was again showing well along with a couple of Avocet and a Little Egret. At Druridge 4 Ruff dropped in, with one in Summer plumage. At East Chevington a fly over Whimbrel was new for the year and 2 Otter were playing on the north pool.

Long-billed Dowitcher
An early afternoon trip to the Durham hills was perhaps badly timed, as nothing was singing, but I did manage a male Pied Flycatcher.


  1. Some absolutely stunning images of the LBD in your previous post Rob. It was a joy to see close up in that light.

    1. Cheers John. It's great to see it like this and so close after 5 months as a grey dot in the distance.

  2. Reverse Hair Loss Program Review

    Thick hair has always been associated with youth and masculinity. Sadly, along with putting on weight and having less energy, thinning on top is definitely a sign of the passing of time. These days most men see balding as a sign of ageing, convincing themselves that their lack of hair is all anyone would see when they looked at them. So the choices are, either to embrace the shaved head look, crop the hair short, sport a comb-over, wear a hat or invest in a hair transplant.
