Canny Day

This mornings trip to Fontburn brought some good views of Pied and Spotted Flycatchers as well as Treecreeper and Redpoll.

Then after a pit stop back home I was out again to see the Boldon Flats, Temmincks Stint.
Back through the tunnel and up to East Chevington to watch a Spoonbill, then on way home there was Wood Sandpiper, Ruff, three Barn Owls, one Short eared Owl at Druridge Pools.

A trip to Newton scrapes this afternoon was well worth it. Despite the manic wind, it was pleasing to see Lesser Yellowlegs, Pectorial Sandpiper, Greenshank, Common Sandpiper.

Then North to Long Nanny where Arctic, Little and Sandwich Terns were on show
