Lesser Whitethroat

Started in the freezing mist by the Derwent at Winlaton Mill. I heard a singing Dipper as soon as I left the car and picked up two birds on the river.

At Far Pasture the drake Pochard was back on the pond and the usual tits were around the car park.

I spent 40 mins staring into a Tynemouth garden before the 'eastern' Lesser Whitethroat appeared at the back of the garden. It showed well feeding on a fat feeder, but was frequently spooked by tits and Blackbirds.

The Glossy Ibis was showing well only a few yards from the road at Lynemouth. No sign of the Green-winged Teal at Druridge, but now three Pintail.

East Chevington held a Slavonian Grebe and a Common Scoter, but no sign of yesterday's Bearded Tit.
