|But what species are the birds ????|
That fantabulous image was taken at Cresswell along with the one below.

I was down at Teesside on Saturday with John, THE Blogger from Howdon and Alan, an expert from Dinnington and Big Waters. Highlights down there were the Black Redstart at Newburn Bridge and another sighting of the juv. Glaucous at Hartlepool Quay. There was a very, very well camouflaged Jack Snipe at Saltholme that had the two wardens on duty describing every detail of what they had not seen to every visitor to the hide. I'm being naughty here, these guys do a good job and my hat is off to them. But it was amusing.

Best sighting of the day for me on Saturday was of 5 Skylarks chasing each other around at Saltholme.
