The Lapwing, Golden Plover and Redshank above were all at Saltholme, Well you need a good breakfast for a day out in the field and Saltholme cafe is such a great spot for eating a full English while watching the birds go by.

We were looking skywards listening to the deafening sounds of geese flying in from the west. I have to admit I and many others had no idea these geese were in fact Taiga Bean Geese.

The Short Eared Owls above were the reason we travelled north. After filling ourselves in the cafe at Saltholme we headed for Seaton common, yesterday there was a report of five Short Eared Owls showing well here and boy they were not wrong. Seaton common has an access road and scrub land on both sides and a golf course beyond that. The owls were showing on both sides of the road and flying between right and left scrubland.

I started talking to a chap with a Barnsley twang and after a few minutes it felt like I'd known him all my life, Ron Marshall was very knowledgeable and I sapped all I could about the birds before us. Ron does talks on many wildlife and travel subjects to bird clubs and organisations all over the country and after our chats have become very good friends.
