RSPB Saltholme, Cleveland

Red-backed Shrike 1 male
Little Stint 2
Little Gull 4 1st summers
Little Ringed Plover 2
Avocet 4

Year: 251 (Little Stint)

So I've ended May on 251 for the year, which compares with 197 at the end of May last year. It seems likely that I'll beat last years record breaking total by the end of June this year, but it remains to be seen how close to 300 I can get by the end of the year. Not very close if I keep turning down opportunities to go to see birds like the Short-toed Eagle in Dorset. Ouch! Perhaps it will stay all summer.....

My third Red-backed Shrike of the spring, but always a stunning bird and an opportunity not to be missed.

Four-spotted Chaser.
