A brief look out yesterday to Boldon Flats and Whitburn. The Bean Goose, 5 Black-tailed Godwit and Ruff were on show at the Flats, but no sign of any Water Pipit at Whitburn, just plenty of Rock Pipit and Sanderling.

A trip to Watergate before work this morning was disappointing with no build up of diving ducks yet. A Woodcock flying down the path was my first in Gateshead for the winter. A phone call from Lamesley sent me there for a Whooper Swan feeding across from the hide, a Gateshead year tick. Fly-throughs here by Buzzard and Sparrowhawk with a steady stream of Redwing overhead.
