Welcome to my blog about Birds, Butterflies, Moths, Mammals, Dragonflies and Damselflies. I am lucky to live near Teesmouth, an area which is great for wildlife in a variety of habitats.

Sleddale - Sunday 2nd November 2014
Despite, the calender saying that today is November 2nd the day was mild between 12C to 15C. For a few hours this afternoon I went to Sleddale to look for Rough-legged Buzzards. The North York Moors look stunning and beautiful in the perfect light. After waiting a few minutes, a bird could be seen on the horizon and I waited until I could see the characteristics identification features of a Rough legged Buzzard before I claimed another bird year tick.
Before the sunset, up to 3 Rough legged Buzzards were seen.
