A quick spin around Gateshead before work this morning. Watergate lake held 2 Wigeon, 9 Little Grebe and 9 Tufted Duck. 3 Grey Wagtail zipped around and a Siskin flew from the scrub at the north end. A couple of Chiffchaff still called.
At Shibdon there were 3 Ruff, 2 Dunlin and 3 Grey Wagtail. A Common Seal was at Timber Beach, but very few waders.
