Couple of year ticks

A jaunt around Gateshead before work. Watergate was quiet with a calling Green Woodpecker the only bird of note. Up to a fog shrouded Burdon Moor where there was a couple of Wheatear and Whitethroat with yesterday's Whimbrel heard, but not seen.

At Birtley reed beds a Sedge Warbler, 4 Reed Warbler and a Garden Warbler were singing, the latter two species my first of the year.

As the rain began to fall it was off to the hide at Lamesley. 3 Yellow and 3 White Wagtail, 3 Pink-footed Geese and a summer plumage Dunlin were on view.
