News of a Gull-billed Tern at Bothal last night had me back up the road this morning. No sign of the tern, but good, distant views of the pratincole. A Yellow Wagtail was showing well on the near shore.
Over to Whittle Dene and the Black Tern was showing well, feeding with Common Tern over the south-western reservoir in a strong wind.
The only thing of note in Gateshead was a late Wheatear at Burdon Moor.
