All quiet at Ladyburn Lake and there was no sign of the diver at Widdrington Moor, so it was off to Druridge. Nothing to speak of from the Budge screen, but the young Scaup was still on the north pool.
Success at Cresswell where the Long-billed Dowitcher made a reappearance after a two day absence. A squealing Water Rail here made a belated addition to the year list.
The Derwent at Winlaton Mill was very high and so no sign of the hoped for Dipper or Kingfisher. A Little Grebe was sitting on the bank, so it wouldn't be swept away. Fly-over Grey Wagtail and 4 Golden Plover were additions to the Gateshead list.
