Yet another bad day, I went up to Teesside this morning for the Glossy Ibis that had been at Saltholme since last weekend but it had decided to depart today and there was little else of note, just a couple of Little Egrets, the flock of Barnacle Geese and a Merlin that shot over and had a tussle with a Kestrel but it was a nice day so I did a bit of photography. After lunch I went to Seaton Snook in search of Twite etc but the place was birdless today so I returned to Saltholme but gave up on the Ibis by late afternoon and headed home via Scaling Dam, a juvenile Red Breasted Goose has been present here since the beginning of the month and its a case of is it wild or not, some think its credentials are good but as it is associating with the resident feral Geese it will probably be deemed an escapee, it was still present today but distant, also a few Whooper Swans there.
