After being too lazy to get my arse out of bed yesterday I was keen this morning and got down to Jarrow at first light. The usual urban birding uncomfortable feeling while wandering the streets with bins and camera, scanning trees in front gardens. Luckily few people were up and the curtains were closed. Good numbers of Mistle Thrush and Redwing were feeding on berries and were joined by a few Bullfinch. A fly-over Peregrine was a good urban bird, but it took an hour before the first Waxwing showed. This was quickly joined by a further four before the flock built up to 35. The murky light was not great for photos.
