After lunch it was up to Druridge Bay where the Black-necked Grebe was showing well at Ladyburn Lake until spooked by a dog-walker feeding the ducks.
A very peed off looking Barn Owl was out in the rain at Cresswell. It must be really struggling to feed, with everywhere waterlogged.
At Backworth the Green-winged Teal was glimpsed through the reeds, but despite a bit of a splodge there was no sign of a Jack Snipe.
