More migrants

Winter continues, with a thick frost this morning, but migrants continue to filter through. A search of the scrub at Shibdon failed to turn up any Whitethroat, but two Common Tern were new in.

Common Tern

At Birtley reed beds there were no warblers singing today, but a huge cloud of Hirundines contained at least two Swift. At least 100 House Martin were among the flock.

Burdon Moor was cold and wind-swept, but held 4 Wheatear.
