An excellent day in Northumberland, but unfortunately no year ticks.

Started at Stag Rocks where poor and very distant views of the Black Scoter were had. Also here were 15+ Long-tailed Duck and a Great Northern Diver.

With news of some geese it was to the Long Nanny next. A large flock of Pink-feet were separate from 30+ Greylag, 50+ Barnacle, 4 European White-front and 2 Tundra Bean.

At Birling the Redpoll flock was very mobile, but did provide good views of the Arctic and a Mealy.

East Chevington still held Slavonian and Black-necked Grebe along with a Common Scoter. Still no sign of Marsh Harrier here for me.

An hour's search for 2 Waxwing that had been seen on wires behind Druridge Pools proved fruitless.

No photos today as everything was either distant or fleeting.
