The wind was again from the south, but still decent birds were passing Whitburn this morning. Balearic Shearwater and Black-throated Diver were the star birds, but there were loads of ducks and a smart summer plumage Grey Plover to finish. Full results here.
Back in Gateshead I was out in the baking sun at Kibblesworth looking for dragonflies. At least 6 male Black Darter were around the marshy pool, plus plenty of Migrant and Southern Hawker around the main pond.
