Popped into Shibdon tonight on the way to the Metro Centre. A cracking Otter feeding in front of the hide. After a few minutes it caught a small eel that it brought to the nearest new island to eat. After eating this it caught a big eel that it dragged off into the reeds. The Otter was badly cut around the shoulders, but it didn't seem to hinder it.
Also here were a Common Sandpiper and a fly over Goosander.
At Lamesley there were 2 Yellow Wagtail and 2 summer plumage Dunlin.
