A pleasant day out in the sun, around Northumberland. Prestwick Carr was first up where the Great Grey Shrike eventually gave itself up. The bird was about 300m north of the sentry box and showed well, close to the path.

From here it was up to East Chevington where I was hoping to get some shots of the Shorelark and Twite, but unfortunately the beach had been cleared by a profusion of dog-walkers.

At Ladyburn Lake the Pacific Diver was still present, but spending much of its time sleeping or feeding far from the shore. I did manage a few shots to show the vent stripe and chin strap.

Next was North Shields Fish Quay for a quarter of Poor Bens, plus 3 Glaucous and an Iceland Gull.
