A walk around the Derwent Valley this morning yielded the usual woodland species. Yellowhammer and Tree Sparrow were feeding by Hollinside Manor. On the river below Kite Hill were Dipper and Little Grebe, while a Kingfisher zipped through. A Dipper was singing by Winlaton Mill.
Another look at Prudhoe gave excellent views of the Rose-coloured Starling.
Quiet around Gateshead, but 3 Grey Partridge were new for the year.
