Nice day today. Sunny and warm with a sea flattening Westerly.

At lunchtime I popped to Newbiggin for half an hour ( praying that I wasn't going to get a Great Shearwater. After the hours at Boulmer that would have been a p...ser).
ASJ and myself had -

Little Gull 12+ loafing close in of all ages.
Arctic Skua 2
Bonxie 2
Sooty Shearwater 1 N.

At Wansbeck Buisiness Park I watched two male dragonflies defending air space. They were either Southern or Migrant Hawkers. The brownish tint to the wings makes me lean towards Southerns. Closer scrutiny tomorrow methinks.

Stewart, at least you've got those long-tails - rather a lot of Little Gulls is my best do.
