I headed back with a detour to Castle Lake. No sign of any Corn Bunting, but a good selection of ducks, 6 Great-crested Grebe and a fly-over Greenshank.
Back to Gateshead and 3 pairs of Little Owl around Ravensworth Fell. Watergate held a pair of Teal and fly-over pair of Goosander. The Ruff still at Shibdon.
After dipping the Blaydon Waxwing due to work yesterday I was pleased to find it again present this afternoon and posing for photos.
