A visit to a customer at the end of March, allowed me to take a slightly longer route home via Upper Teesdale, where I stopped for a while at the hills above Langdon Beck. In the valleys, several male

97. Black Grouse

were visible, while on the top of the hills there were a lot of calling

98. Red Grouse (100th species for 2018)

On Easter weekend, before jetting off on holiday, I had a cycle out to the coast, where I added:

99. Chiffchaff (30 March)

at Lynemouth, and

100. Grey partridge
101. Avocet
102. Bar-tailed godwit

at Cresswell Pond (22-24 Avocet being a record for me at the site).
