Same again today. Trudged around Whitburn this morning with just 2 Chiffchaff and 1 Blackcap to show for the wet feet. The Leas hedge was much more promising with 1 Grasshopper Warbler, 1 Reed Warbler, 2 Blackcap and 4-5 Garden Warbler. A Mediterranean Gull appeared out of the fog.
Marsden Quarry held a calling Yellow-browed Warbler and the hall had a Red-breasted Flycatcher with Blackcap and Garden Warbler.
Back in Gateshead at Shibdon there were 4 Ruff and a Kingfisher. A Wigeon at Lamesley and a Little Owl on Pennyfine Road.
