.......but not much else.
A few sightings of Goldcrest in the bushes at Druridge but i have a feeling it may have been the same bird. Apart from a number of Robins nothing else of note.
A Velvet Scoter early morning was enjoyable followed immediately by a Kestrel showing its aerial prowess by hovering stationary at Snab Point for over 3 minutes in winds exceeding gale force. The birds tail was at ninety degrees beneath the body most of the time.Light was no good for an image unfortunately.........if i'd been able to stand upright and still that is.
A Barnacle Goose was present in fields just north of what is now Cresswell Duck Pond as i stopped briefly early morn. and later as i headed home late p.m.
Below is a couple of images from Sunday morning of the Shorelark which was close to Chibburn Burn. I was one of only five birders that saw it for 10/15 minutes picking thro' the strand line. It had been seen briefly 15 minutes earlier by one gent for only 30 seconds. Both times it disappeared into the dunes.
