Welcome to my sightings page, where I aim to display a compilation of my birding and wildlife sightings and experiences. From January 2016, I started to use social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr to share my experiences (please click here to view older records). Please feel free to view, follow, like, comment, etc.


Please view the following reports on twitter, which is the account I use when out in the field.  Alternatively, visit my facebook page for more detailed sightings and photographs:

Northumberland: First stop was Linton Lane NR where Slavonian Grebe and Marsh Harrier were seen with the more common birds. Next was the short drive to Boulmer, which gave me good views of an injured Gannet, Whimbrel, Arctic tern and Northern Wheatear (no sign of the previously reported Long-billed Dowitcher). Stopped off at 2-3 coastal locations on the way back seeing Puffin, Guillimot, Razorbill, Roseate Tern, Arctic Tern, Common Tern, Sandwich Tern, Fulmar, etc. ... See MoreSee Less
