A disappointing weekend after a cracking week. Yesterday was mostly spent at Whitburn Obs, where a Fea's Petrel failed to fly past. The best birds were a flock of 8 Little Tern flew north along with 10 close Manx Shearwater.

Today was mostly spent in Gateshead not hearing Quail in the Kibblesworth area. A great looking area by the Team Valley where a Quail had been singing yesterday, but looks to have moved on. The only birds of note were the Black-tailed Godwit still at Shibdon and the first Whimbrel of the year over Burdon Moor.

Field without Quail
A late tweet got me down to SAFC Academy where I failed to see a Red-backed Shrike. A Whinchat was scant consolation.
