Common Sand

Still slow with the chilly weather. My first Common Sandpiper of the year was at Shibdon today, but nothing else. A few White Wagtail have been passing through Lamesley, while hirundine numbers have been building up. Warblers have been slipping in with Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff and Blackcap singing everywhere.

Seawatching at Whitburn on Saturday was poor despite the northerly and the only decent bird was an adult Little Gull. The walk back to the car was pleasant in a heavy sleet shower.

A couple of decent days forecast before Winter returns at the weekend.
