Black-throated Diver still at the Marina

Called briefly at Hartlepool marina on Sunday just as the BT Diver flew in, it gave some close views before it flew back out to sea after being disturbed by several dinghy's.

Back in Action

Can't believe it is about three weeks since our last post, but it has been quite quiet of late and also Mick is now back at work so he can't get out as much.  We did however manage to take a trip up to Crookfoot Reservoir today where we located the Red Head Smew in the distance and then had a fly by of a Peregrine which kept putting up the Teal.  We then headed down to the Headland where the Med Gull was in it's usual location on the rocks and lots of Common Scoter were near the sea wall.  At the Marina the Black Throated Diver was showing well.
