First port of call was Lynemouth Flash where there was a smart Greenshank with 6 Dunlin.
From the Budge Hide at Druridge there was 2 Ruff, 1 Greenshank, 1 Little Egret and a Yellow Wagtail. Two Marsh Harrier were hunting to the north and 2 Red Admiral and a Peacock were sheltering from the wind.
At Foxton Bends 8 Common Sandpiper, 2 Greenshank, 2 Kittiwake and 3 Little Egret.
Newton Scrape is looking good with loads of birds, holding 2 Ruff, 1 Little Ringed Plover and a Kittiwake.
Back in Gateshead the Ruff was still at Shibdon and 3 Little Grebe at Far Pasture. The latter site held Southern Hawker and Ruddy Darter, but neither would settle for the camera.
