Shibdon came up with the goods today after a quiet spell. A fine summer plumage Black-tailed Godwit was feeding furiously in the middle of the pond. Annual in recent years, but historically a very rare bird in Gateshead.

Good numbers of Wheatear at Burdon Moor and a Yellow Wagtail at Lamesley this morning. By this evening the Yellow Wag tally was up to 4, feeding in front of the gate with a White Wagtail.
Brief views of a Lesser Whitethroat at Birtley reed beds.
