Little Owl

Headed  south to Teesside while home was still draped with fog. An on/off, possible/probable Water Pipit was the aim at Seaton Common. No luck, with just a few 'littoralis' Rock Pipits feeding in the rough grass. Nothing exciting at Saltholme from the road and just a Roe Deer at Dorman's.

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.
