Nowt from the north

A bit of a northerly attracted a few into Whitburn obs this morning, but unfortunately the birds failed to turn up. A Velvet Scoter was the only highlight of a very quiet seawatch.

Back in Gateshead a frozen Lamesley was deserted and Shibdon was again very quiet. At Stella there were fewer gulls with the tip being shut, but the adult Iceland Gull was still present. An afternoon run took in Watergate where there were 2 Lesser Black-backed Gull, the first of the year at this site, 3 weeks later than last year.
