25/05/2013 to 27/05/2013
Mixed bag of birding and wildlife over the weekend due to family visits, too much alcohol and too many late nights, but here are the highlights.
Friday night and some cracking views of a couple of Barn Owls hunting near Scalby over the coastal road.
Saturday and a ride to Brompton Ponds to show off the family of Mute Swans and Cygnets, along with a few Mallards and Ducklings.
Sunday a ride to Troutsdale and a good view of the local Dippers and a Grey Wagtail feeding it's fledgling on the river bank.
No views of the Kingfishers, though reported to be there the weekend before, no signs of them were evident.
