A weekend of contrasts

Saturday saw us pay a visit to Saltholme to see the Temmink's Stint which was view-able at distance from the Saltholme hide. Then on to Sutton Bank to check out the 3 Turtle Doves in the area.

Sunday we had a run over to Smardale, not much doing on the 'Birding' front but managed to see several Northern Brown Argus butterflies and a nice array of Orchids, the highlight for us is always finding Common Lizards in the area.
