Through the looking glass

... or window.

Tynemouth



Not quite playing the game today, the Black Redstart fed just out of range and down on the shore... Fulmar are back on the cliffs though...

- 1 + 1

Black Scoter seems unfavourable given the recent images showing an overly yellow billed common, and given the tricky viewing conditions it'll be better to remain sceptical until better views/images can be obtained.

On a brighter note, the journey to Killingworth was spruced up with news of a second Smew present on the larger lake - so one on each of the sides of the road now.

Only the smaller pool favourable for pics, albeit in windy conditions and dull light (and poor cameraman skills for that matter...)

However, a blog pic at least.
