We can't believe it has been so long since we posted anything on our blog.
A few pictures from our recent holiday to Mull at the end of May.

The list grows slowly

 
Picked up some birds for our year list today when we were out and about. A pair of Goosander were on the River Leven at Hutton Rudby but distant. Further up the road at Sexhow we came across a good flock of Tree Sparrow, Chaffinch, Yellowhammer, Reed Bunting and Brambling.
 

 
We came across 15 Whooper Swan near Lakeside Café near Scorton later in the day. A nice day although the weather was a bit overcast and chilly.

New Start

 
We've decided to start keeping the blog again to use it as a diary of what we have see this year.
The 100 bird species this year was a Black Grouse seen on the Northern North York Moors, we also managed to see a Merlin and Woodcock in the same area.
The year started with some good sightings which included the Teesmouth Hen Harrier, the Sleddale Rough-legged Buzzard, Waxwings at Billingham, Long-eared Owl at Saltholme to name but a few.

The Slavonian Grebe at Skinningrove was showing well on New Years Day at the start of our 2019 Bird list

The week of 'The Beast From The East'.

What a week it has been.  The weather has been abysmal with snow and very low temperatures.
Travelling to and from work for my son and husband has been anything but good and I was glad each day to know when they had arrived safely.  As for myself, who lives 5 minutes from the school where I work, well we have had three snow days!
This has given me plenty of time to feed and watch the birds in the garden.
Here are a few pictures of our 'firsts for the garden' birds.
We hope you like looking at them.
 
 
 
 


 

 


And a local Barn Owl when we managed to get out yesterday.
