Little Ringed Plover
A walk around Burdon Moor before breakfast gave 20ish Wheatear in a stiff north westerly.
Another look around Derwent Reservoir failed to give a passing Osprey, but good views of the Long-tailed Duck and a displaying pair of Great Crested Grebe.
Great Crested Grebe
Up to Edmundbyers and plenty of Red Grouse and Wheatear. A Ring Ouzel kept typically distant and a Merlin made a brief appearance over the ridge. An untagged Red Kite was a constant presence.
