A quiet seawatch from Whitburn was livened up by a fly-by Iceland Gull, but little else.

I called in at Washington WT on the way back and paid a tenner for cracking views of the drake Ferruginous Duck.

Back in Gateshead I failed again to see the Rock Pipit at Dunston, but the Waxwing flock was still at Swalwell.


At Lamesley there was a Barnacle Goose with the Greylag flock, plus 20 Wigeon and 7 Gadwall. By the oak tree there were 50+ Redwing, 20+ Fieldfare, 5 Mistle Thrush, 30+ Linnet and 15+ Greenfinch.
