An excellent day seawatching from Whitburn. Starting with heavy rain and gradually clearing an cracking range of species seen. Bird of the day was a Long-tailed Skua that flew north at reasonable range with an Arctic Skua. Great views of Black and Roseate Tern along with the best run of Skua of the year so far made for a top day. Full results here.

On a lunch-time high tide at Whitburn Steel there were two Little Stint.

Back in Gateshead 2 Green Sandpiper were at Lamesley and a Black-tailed Godwit at Shibdon.

Yesterday's seawatching highlight was a Little Egret, while in Gateshead 3 Green Sandpiper at Lamesley and a Ringed Plover at Timber Beach.
