Whinchat and Harrier

A late report for yesterday.

The Wood Sandpiper was still at Lamesley, having moved to the flash pool, but all quiet in the rest of Gateshead.

A look further north and a detour with news of a Wryneck at Newbiggin. No sign, but I did find a Whinchat on the ash lagoon bank.

At Cresswell 2 Little Gull were in front of the hide. A few more waders here today with 2 Grey Plover, 2 Avocet, 15 Dunlin, 1 Greenshank and a Common Sandpiper.

The north pool at East Chevington was very quiet, but a Marsh Harrier was hunting over the south. Also here were Small Copper and Blue-tailed Damselfly, both new for the year.
