Almost certain I heard a whitethroat on Cleadon Hills this evening, I was on my way off so didn't get a positive ID. I would recognise that scratchy call anywhere!!

Walked up the Leas and on to Whitburn CP this morning and for once it stayed dry. Not much to write about in the CP, single Moorhen and Mallard on the north pond and when coming away crossing over the mound a pair of Grey Partridge flew in landing down the bottom of the reserve. I was on the mound on Wednesday and a Weasel crossed my path 6ft in front of me and even stopped for a few seconds to stare at me but not obliging enough to get a photo.

Sand Martin numbers in Marsden Bay are on the up and there are now around 10 there.

Still around 6 Wheatears in Trow but quite flighty.
