30 minutes at Newcastle Business Park saw 3 pair of Shelduck, Teal, Curlew, Blackheaded Gull, Cormorant, Mallard, Carrion Crow, Redshank. A group of Long Tail Tits were skipping through the riverside bushes.
Although a very common bird, I am always impressed by the Teal colours and markings.
The Black-headed Gulls are almost exactly that.
and the Carrion Crows working through the bladderwrack were looking in good condition
