Cormorant Conundrum

29th February added two new year birds. LBB Gulls (1st migrants of the year) at QEII country park and Red-legged Partridge at Druridge.

This Cormorant has the look of a Newcastle manager?

Just had another look at the Cormorant photo and remembered an article about 'Gular Pouch Angles'. this one appears to be about 90 degrees suggesting Phalacrocorax carbo sinensis.
Let me know what you think!

Chevington burnmouth is a great place to watch displaying Ringed Plover. Lynemouth flash field has 20+ Ringed Plover

Penduline Chat?

No just Stonechat with a penchant for perching on Reedmace.
