The country park (Druridge) has a good variety of birds and is a welcome place of shelter on a wet and windy day.
M.E. found this splendid Great Northern Diver on Ladyburn Lake.
Several trips to Newbiggin during the last two weeks. Water Pipit, Woodcock, Velvet Scoter among the highlights.
Seal in South Shields harbour enjoying a rather sizeable Sea Trout.
Hooded Crow at Linton
Smew. This is becoming a scarce bird in Northumberland , so it was nice to see one at East Chevington even if it did keep its distance.
Water levels remaining low have ensured there are always plenty of birds to check through.
