In Whickham the Waxwing infestation seems to have peaked, with now about 300 birds and a dwindling supply of berries they may soon move on.
At the traditional site of Jackie's Plantation, Greenside there were 10+ Brambling, giving me another Gateshead year tick.
Very quiet at Sled Lane, with just 2 Goosander and 2 Tufted Duck.
At other sites around Gateshead there were 2 Black-tailed Godwit and 15 Shoveler at Shibdon. At Lamesley the Whooper Swan remains along with loads of Mallard with 150+ birds. About 300 Golden Plover were circling Burdon Moor.
