What a glorious afternoon. The wind has dropped off and the sun even has some warmth in it.

A couple of trips down Boulmer today had 70 Pinkfeet N, 125 Wigeon on the sea off Seaton Point, 6 Common Scoter N, and 2 Red throated Divers, 1N and 1S. 1 Grey Wagtail and 2 Meadow Pipits were on the seaweed feeding on swarms of black flies brought out by the warming sun. Two patch ticks today, wait for it,

68. Stock Dove
69. Feral Pigeon

Still no Dunnock, Fulmar or Guillemot...mind you, I haven't really put myself out for the Dunnock.

At home, the male and female Blackcap were on the fat balls briefly.

Hi Stewart,I had posted a comment but in the wrong place, I have enjoyed reading your blog so much that I have started my own "Northumbrian Birding" it will be as the title implies from mostly Northumberland & a bit of Durham,until I get loads of cash and move to Holy Island it will have to do.

Fantastic Brian, I've had a quick look and am well impressed. I'll add you onto my links when I get a minute this week..
