Up early for a disappointing seawatch at Whitburn. A good passage south of Sandwich Tern and 8 Manx Shearwater were the highlights, so I headed back to Gateshead. Twenty minutes after arriving at Lamesley 4 very smart Black-tailed Godwit dropped in.
After breakfast it was back up to Northumberland to hunt for the Spoonbill that turned up yesterday. Despite a good search there was no sign, but there were Wood Sandpiper at Cresswell and Druridge, plus Avocet and 2 Little Ringed Plover at Lynemouth Flash.
