Hunting for Pochard I had a look at Saltwell Park. No luck today, but there were 52 Tufted Duck. A bonus was a Greenfinch, the most obvious gap in my Gateshead year list.
A Lamesley 22 Pink-footed Geese were feeding with Graylag. Rare to see a flock on the deck in Gateshead, usually just seen passing over. 3 Wigeon were still here and a Buzzard was displaying in the distance.
