8 Song Thrush
1 Ring Ouzel
2 Black Redstart - around the Lindisfarne Hotel.
15 Long-tailed Tit
1 Short-eared Owl
Later in the day another Black Redstart was mobile around the compound on Newton Point, while the day before a Jack Snipe had been sleeping in front of the south hide on the north pool at Chevington.
Down in North Yorkshire on Thursday the gull roost at Lingham Lake held 2 Caspian Gulls (distinctive first and third-winters), an adult Yellow-legged Gull and a leucistic Black-headed Gull among the thousands of other gulls.
This morning we managed good views of a male Bearded Tit in front of the north hide on the north pool at Chevington (only my second on patch and a much better view than the first) along with 2 Otters there and a Short-eared Owl at Druridge Pools.
All my photos recently have been pretty poor and my excuse is that the weather hasn't been great!
