Still pretty quiet at Stag Rocks, but I did pick up a few new birds. Great Northern Diver, Slavonian Grebe, Razorbill and Puffin were new with a few Red-throated Diver, Common Scoter and Long-tailed Duck. A walk north along the beach produced a single Snow Bunting at the base of the dunes.
No sign of the Bewick's Swan at Newton, but there was a White-fronted Goose with a flock of Greylag.
A hunt through the Teal at Druridge failed to reveal the Green-winged again. At Widdrington the Hen Harrier didn't show but I did see my first Great Crested Grebe of the year and a cracking Peregrine.
News from Gateshead made Shibdon the last call of the day to see the Ruff, returned after going missing for a few days.
