More from the north

Some more excellent seawatching today in some more less than pleasant weather. The first Iceland Gull of the winter was the star, but there were loads of birds, including 2 Short-eared Owl and a Woodcock in-off. Full results here.

Back in Gateshead a lone Whooper Swan was at Lamesley. A welcome Gateshead year tick.

Only other birds of note in Gateshead were 7 Shoveler at Shibdon, until I was almost home. In Whickham I picked up a flock of Waxwing at the northern junction of Fellside Road and Parkway. Initially 30+ birds, but these quickly built up to over 100. Loads of berries here, so they'll hopefully hang around.
