Wrong Direction

Not convinced that the Collared Flycatcher would stick around at St. Abb's I headed south and spent the morning not seeing any Dotterel at North Gare.

A few migrants around Hartlepool Headland with Pied Flycatcher, Lesser Whitethroat and Garden Warbler along with decent numbers of Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler.

Lesser Whitethroat

Pied Flycatcher

Gateshead was quiet with just a fall of Wheatear at Burdon Moor. Plenty of Butterflies about in the sun with Large, Small and Green-veined White, Orange Tip and Peacock.


A brief look around the Derwent Reservoir area a calling Cuckoo near the reservoir and 2 singing Pied Flycatcher at Muggleswick, but otherwise it was very quiet.
