South Shields Wheatears

This morning I was south of the Tyne and so took the opportunity to see if the recently reported Wheatears were still at the start of the pier at South Shields. Before I reached the pier proper, I met Doug @Jarrowbirders  watching 4 Wheatears on a small bit of fenced off derelict land.

We parted company and I went a little further along the pier adjacent to where the beach ends, and I saw at least another four colourful individuals

I later heard that Doug had gone 2 or 3 miles south to Jackies beach and found a further six there

I spotted one of these birds near Trow Rocks today. I wasn't sure what it was until I saw your photographs. Mine was the lighter-coloured version.
