A day in Cleveland produced some but by no means all of the hoped for birds.

A great start to the day, up and out chasing down the Tawny owls having a hooting competition outside the house.

144. (100.) Tawny owl

Hartlepool

145. (101.) Linnet
146. (102.) Glaucous gull
147. (103.) Lapland bunting
148. (104.) Knot
149. (105.) Sanderling
150. (106.) Shag
151. (107.) Eider
152. (108.) Guillemot

Cowpen Bewley

153. (109.) Yellowhammer

Saltholme

154. (110.) Spotted redshank
155. (111.) Golden plover
156. (112.) Black tailed godwit
157. (113.) Snipe

---. (115.) Brent goose (Dark bellied)

Tried for the Danby Beacon Snow buntings in the late afternoon but no sign. Not helped by a strange couple sat in their car watching on while the pet dog took itself for a walk all around the car park where they have been seen regularly.
