Things are drying up.

Just the one Bittern at Gosforth Park in the 90 minutes i was there. I've fallen on hard times !!
Noticeable movement of birds around the reed beds today.
A quick visit to Killingworth Lakes on the way brought me 2 Great Crested Grebes, the redhead Smew was still on the smaller lake. I also had a Scaup, half a dozen Goosanders, 14 Goldeneye and it was nice to first hear then see the 2, what i presume is, the returning Oystercatchers.

Still awful light this afternoon.
