Something's bound to turn up!

11th November: Hemlington Lake and Saltholme

A visit to Hemlington Lake, Middlesbrough to see if the mystery Upland goose was still around. Unringed but must have come from someone's collection, I hadn't seen one before. Pretty female bird.

Then I went to Saltholme and saw a marsh harrier from Phil Stead's hide.

Plus a distant cattle egret.

21st November: Bempton and Scarborough

Bempton was enjoying having a long-eared owl roosting in the Dell. A small group of birders were watching and I joined them. Second photo shows quality of cropped image with Canon R7 camera plus 500mm lens.

Scarborough harbour was quiet. 

23rd November: Blacktoft Sands

Blacktoft was fairly quiet too. It's that time of year. But I was pleased one of the fieldfares was a bit more confiding.

Geese as the light rapidly faded.

25th November: Hartlepool and Saltholme

A bird swimming slowly out of the fish dock at Hartlepool caught my eye. I only had bins with me. I felt it wasn't an eider so I waited for it to approach. Guillemot.

Marsh harrier and teal at Phil Stead's.

 

 

From Saltholme car park: crab apple [Golden Hornet?] and a late dandelion looking bright and cheerful.
