I did not manage to make it for the release of the radde's warbler and did not get there until late saturday afternoon and the raddes had been showing 20min's before i arrived but it did not show any more, but the glossy ibis was showing well again close to the hide on the large pool and 3 greenshanks were also present 1 showing close to the hide. ive seen the glossy at 3 sights now cresswell inc bells pond longhirst and now druridge
I watched him or her fly off again on Saturday night and head towards the budge screen area
As it is taking off before roost it always gives off a couple of grunts gruaa gruaa and is a real stunner in flight.
On Sunday i was determined to get up to druridge earlier to see if the radde's was showing and at about 9 o'clock i got some good views as it was showing well in an opening at the start of the path leading to the hides an excellent bird for northumberland but very elusive and i was one of the lucky ones to see it on the Sunday.
