Today was quiet (apart from the shotgun blasts)! South Pool E Chev, 2 mallard 1 tufty? The North Pool picked up in the afternoon and Gadwall and Goldeneye numbers were good. News of an Ivory Gull heading North had me checking the sea and even trip to Amble Harbour. No news since but a trip to the N Shields Fish Quay tomorrow might be on the cards.
One bonus of the seawatching was a close in Velvet Scoter; 'bird of the day'!
