Waders on the rocks.

Golden Plover Knot
Purple Sandpiper
Trying to get a few of the more common birds added onto our new year list and managed a few of the not so common birds today as well. Not been feeling too good of late so just went for a walk around Hartlepool Headland to blow the cobwebs off and it was a bit chilly. Came across a Golden Plover on Parton Rocks along with quite a few Knot, Oystercatcher, Turnstone and Purple Sandpiper. A couple of Red Throated Diver at sea along with a porpoise and several Great Crested Grebe. A common Scoter was in the shelter of the Heugh Pier with several Eider and there was a dead seal on the beach there. We eventually managed to view the Red Necked Grebe from the battery. Called into Dormans Pool on the way home and saw the Ring Necked Duck.
Do not want to go back to school tomorrow!!
