Wet Pockets

Headed north with Phil on another quest for a county tick or two - yesterdays news of a Siberian Stonechat just south of Howick came just too late to make use of accumulated brownie points, so a post work trip it was.

We arrived just as the heavens opened - and consequently continued for the whole two and a half hours in the field.

The sibe stonechat performed well, until it opted to retreat from the rain - so with a county tick under the belt we headed to Beadnell Bay, picking up a cracking and obliging Lapland Bunting on the track, but no hoped for Richard's Pipit - a species that seems destined not to make my county list!
