Now the past few days, I have had a couple of excellent bits of natural history recording, firstly the Bio-Blitz on Saturday in the Derwent valley and then down to Hartlepool to see (yes twitch) a very rare bird, a White-throated Robin. This bird made all the papers and television news and hundreds of birders managed to see it yesterday and today including yours truly. No chance of a photograph while I was there but below is a picture of it from my mate Paul Davidson who was far quicker off the mark.

A 2nd for the county on Saturday with the Saxon moth, then a 1st for the county and only 3rd for Britain with the White-throated Robin, so why do I feel a bit guilty? Because I have neglected Waldridge, that's why, funny what writing a blog does to you.
