Next up was the Rock Pipit that David A. found at Dunston on the 16th. A couple of hours the next day failed to turn up a bird that I've hoping for and put in a fair bit of effort looking for over the last few years. It was looking like another dip yesterday, but as I was standing on the promenade talking to David the Pipit dropped in. It was flitting along the edge of the promenade wall, so no chance of a photo before it disappeared. Here's one of David's from the 16th.

The Barnacle Goose was again at Lamesley today along with the Pintail, 4 Wigeon and 5 Gadwall.
