I had a nice weekend with my family in the Lake District, where the destruction left by Storm Desmond was still evident. Over the weekend we saw quite a few Pied Flycatchers and one or two Redstart.
A couple of trips to Harthope Valley surprisingly produced a few Slow Worms. A species that seems to be doing well in that area.
Around the Druridge Bay area recently I've managed a few shots of a Barn Owl, a superb Lesser Whitethroat and a very showy Grasshopper Warbler.
This morning I headed to Catton with Gwen, where we had a nice walk up onto the Moss to see the Short-toed Lark. Then this afternoon I headed for Lynemouth Flash to see the very trusting Citrine Wagtail.
