Grasshopper, Reed and Sedge Warblers back on patch. Blackcap, Common Whitethroat and Lesser Whitethroat also present.
So my last visit (for sometime) to East Chevington was bittersweet. I will miss the patch and all the friends I have made in Northumberland, as I received my passport so I can head south across the Tyne to start a new patch. A rather large one which I have decided to name 'Tyne2Tees'.
My old patch sent me off with a magnificent present. This amazing Male Black Redstart above in the gloomy early light (06:30 ish)
Then on the way back from my walk it was a little brighter and some slightly better images were obtained.
I will be back!
I will rename this blog and update you on my new adventures. 'Good Birding' to all those who continue to birdwatch in Northumberland and please don't find too many rarities at East Chevington.
