Feathers in lovely breeding condition if a tad early?

The Pheasant was so bright on a relatively dull day. The Water Rail did visit a couple of times but was disturbed by the slightest movement in the hide.
A visit South of the Tyne and I came across this flock of 34 Waxwings.
Unfortunately they were not allowed to feed on the berry laden tree because it was being protected by the Mistle Thrush below. Managed also to see the 7 Snow Buntings flying over the beach as I headed for a coffee on the coast.
Heading home from South Shields a brief detour to Northumberland Park and the NS Fish Quay.
(No white-wingers though)
Today it was over to Fontburn Reservoir.
Very little on the birding front but the peaty water in the reservoir made for some nice reflections.
