Last evening we took Bunty for a walk down the Low Steads road. The Little Owl showed well on wires and telegraph poles almost up to Longhoughton Football field.
This morning I was at work in Ashington when 21 Crossbills flew west over the Technical College. Obviously migrants, there is absolutely nothing for them in East Ashington ( or for any other living creature for that matter!)
Tonight at Seaton Point one or two Whimbrels were whistling around the shore.
On yesterdays post I was too engrossed in looking for plants and butterflies I forgot the birds, not that there were many. In Corby Crags wood though there were a good few Lesser Redpoll families and a Siskin or two buzzing around the young conifer plantations. It seems that they have done well up here.
