Snow watch

With a strong north westerly I had another seawatch from Whitburn this morning. Although not the number of birds over weekend, it ended up a decent watch with some good birds among the snow showers.

Back to Gateshead and Lamesley held the drake Gadwall, 4 Wigeon and a Snipe, all just in front of the hide.

At Burdon Moor there were the usual flocks of Skylark and Fieldfare while 100+ Golden Plover flew from the top field. No sign of any Crossbill at Chopwell, but there were 50+ Siskin and several Great Spotted Woodpecker.
