Hanging On


Up to 50 Twite have been feeding and drinking at the Burnmouh, East Chev.


Water Pipit still lingering near the coal road but getting harder to locate. A brief sighing was 'reported' earlier today (27th Dec).



Still checking Amble Harbour ... no big rewards yet.



Monster in the Harbour!


A lot of water about (but mustn't complain ... we're not in Cumbria or Lancashire).



A distant Slavonian Grebe on the North Pool and the Marsh Harrier on the South Pool.

 


Having notice a couple of Iceland Gulls (DBCP) last week I spotted another in fields near the Hauxley turn off. Today there wasn't a gull in the field but DBCP had this rather smart one.


Trick to et exposure right. It was a bright sunny day and despite trying I never quite got it perfect, hey ho!



Juvenile Iceland Gull



At one stage picked up reeds and started snapping them. I wonder if it was looking for wintering larvae?



Just a few more days and the listers will be back to zero for the year. I think I'll avoid Chev on Saturday?
