Sunny in the bay

Lovely weather again today, pity my trip up the coast was relatively bird-less. No sign of any avocet at Cresswell, no sign of garganey at Druridge nor Hauxley. Instead the highlight was seeing the drake tufted duck/ring-necked duck hybrid at Hauxley (tho' too far away for a photograph), my first 2010 willow warblers and sandwich tern.


The long-tailed tit was at Hauxley. A lively little fella he was too...

Nice blog, I went to university in Newcastle in the late 80's and can remember some of the places you mention.

Nice LTT shot too, they are very hard to photograph, trust me I've tried.......

Yes Stu, I could only manage a quick few shots when it landed on top of the bush, all the other times it would be partially obscured in the vegetation!
