Recent sightings...

A few days in York last week meant we weren't around when the Black-winged Pratincole turned up on my old patch of Bothal Pond. Thankfully it stuck around and gave good views, especially in flight over the pond. A Common Sandpiper was also there along with 3 Yellow Wagtails.

I finally managed to photograph a Holly Blue butterfly in York.

3 Little Gulls were at Cresswell this morning, with another 2 at Chevington, where 2 Spoonbills were present on the North Pool. 2 drake Mandarin were at Druridge Pools where there was also 17 Black-tailed Godwits and a Cuckoo calling, which despite a search we couldn't see.

PWC 15
Species: 150
Points: 197

 The Black-winged Pratincole only took to flight to feed late in the evening hence the poor photos.
