Shibdon Ponds held loads of Black-headed Gulls, Lapwings and Redshank. The Ruff was still there and Snipe showed well. And again a rainbow taken with my mobile phone.
At Clara Vale the Kingfisher was on the pond at the right of the hide when I arrived but was hidden by reeds and grass so only poor shots were had. It then flew to the main pond where it stayed but it was nearly always in what has become know as its killing tree as it fly’s to an Oak tree to kill and eat its catch. A Sparrowhawk flew through putting up most of the small birds that the strong wind was not keeping down.
Still not a bad day out.
