A Sunny Evening at last.

Spotted Flycatcher

Lapwing Chick

Common Redstart

I am obviously talking about last nigh - Tuesday as tonight we were walking around Teesside Park in the pouring rain. We went out armed with our picnic to Snilesworth up on the moors to see what was around and to see if the Spotted Flycatchers had arrived and we were pleased to find they had. It was a beautiful evening, sunny, still and warm. The Redstarts were along the roadside on the fences, there were young nuthatches and a treecreeper and we saw our first Jay in this location as well. There were yound Robins and either Marsh or Willow Tits (have to admit we are not sure which), curlews and Red Legged Partridge but we could not locate the Pied Flycatchers which we presume must have fledged and possibly moved on.
