After a cold start Monday got out nice, which gave a chance for a look around Gateshead. A male Peregrine caused havoc at Burdon Moor, scattering Lapwing, Golden Plover and winter thrushes from the fields. At Far Pasture there was a complete lack of Yellow-browed Warbler (will keep trying), but there was a Chiffchaff to keep the interest going. Both sites also held late Common Darter.
