Nasty, nasty, nasty.

Pretty grim weather in Northumberland today. A strong easterly and constant rain made it feel cold and damp, so not ideal birding conditions. I ended up picking up 22 new birds for the year, but the main targets (Long-billed Dowitcher and Black Redstart) were missed. Star birds were Iceland Gull at QE11, Slavonian Grebe at East Chevington and Twite at Amble Braid.

Iceland Gull in near darkness this morning.
