Went to Bradbury to collect a couple of bags of bird seed this morning and on the way back we stopped at Bishop Middleham to see the Long-tailed Duck that has been there for a couple of days. From there we went over to Hartlepool Headland, here we were checking out the Purple Sandpipers on Parton Rocks when we saw the blue flash of a bird flying past, it circled round and landed very briefly before flying off again.............didn't expect to see a Kingfisher flying over the sea but it did brighten up our day!
