Falling snow this morning put me off seawatching so I had an extra couple of hours in bed before heading to Prudhoe. With better info and a hunch that the Rose-coloured Starling would use the leylandii hedge for shelter, I moved street to Cheviot View. After standing for the best part of an hour with wet feet in melting snow the hunch paid off and the bird showed briefly and poorly in the top of the hedge. 20 mins later and it showed well, although a bit more distantly, perched up and fighting with Starlings. A few other birds around the gardens with Tree Sparrow, Jay and Siskin.
