Black Redstart

Distinctly colder today with a north-westerly wind. Started the day at Druridge Bay C.P. where there were a scattering of Pochard, Tufted Duck, Goldeneye and Red-breasted Merganser. East Chevington held similar, with no sign of the Smew. The beach here held 30+ Sanderling, while 6 dark-bellied Brent Geese flew north.

Church Point, Newbiggin next where a crowd of twenty or so birders were huddled on the cliff edge. Just one Black Redstart remained, but this this showed well at close range as it fed along the cliff base.

A few gulls on the beach with 4 adult and 1 2nd winter Mediterranean Gull, but no sign of yesterday's Glaucous Gull.
