No wigeon

Another dip of the Grindon Lough American Wigeon. I and a couple of others spent an hour and a half scanning through the 500+ Wigeon with no success. The only highlight was the 6 Whooper Swan that flew low overhead, heading north west, calling all the way.

A bonus Brambling was at the roadside on the Military Road and a quick stop at Whittle Dene gave the wintering Green Sandpiper in the outflow channel.


  1. Which side of the road (N or S) is the outflow channel at Whittle Dene?
