Shibdon and Reeth

At Shibdon this afternoon this cracking Green Sandpiper gave plenty of time to view

Snipe at Shibdon

There were a couple of dozen Canada Geese, Water Rail, Oystercatcher, Grey Heron but no sign of the Egret

Having left Shibdon I then went over to Newburn and The Reeth

There were also Four-spotted chaser dragonfly and loads of Peacock and Wall butterfly

Good spot. Bird ID skills obviously coming along

Lovely selection, particularly the Wall that is no longer seen in Surrey. FAB.
