Marsden Med

Survey work between South Shields and Marsden Rock today in some wild wind. Waders were a bit thin on the ground with just 3 Purple Sandpiper seen all day. Highlights were Great Crested Grebe, Razorbill, 3 Stonechat, Grey Wagtail and 2 adult Mediterranean Gull.

A detour on the way home via Kibblesworth Grange gave my first Little Owl of the year.
