Durham Bird Club's Castle Lake Nature Reserve

Some You Win...

...and some you lose. You would have though that sitting in a hide overlooking a lake is the ideal place for a birder to be, but not this morning when BC entered the hide and asked if I'd seen the two Bewick's Swan that went over (behind the hide) five minutes earlier. Doh!!
Nevermind there's always a next time, isn't there? Still a good selection on offer around Castle Lake today including the following;
5 Pink-footed Geese went over south with about 50 Greylag's mid-morning, 13 Eurasion White-fronted Geese still on the A1 Flashes (two much improved on yesterday pictures);

Goldeneye, female Goosander, 11 Grey Partridge (3 pictured below);

Common Buzzard, ringtail/immature Hen Harrier still hunting over Low Hardwick, 300 Golden Plover, Dunlin and Green Sandpiper,
