" No Stork today,
My Stork has gone away,
There's nothing else to say,
Nothing left to say..."
Yesterday, I needed to be home for Bunty as Jane was out. Black Stork on display for about 4 hours at Ryton.
Today, kit packed in car, ready to leave work at a minutes notice, not a snifter of Stork. Not one jot all day.
Back to yesterday, walked Bunts around the Seaton Point. A large gathering of terns were out on the rocks facing a rising tide. There were 50+ Arctics, 2 adult Roseates, 10+ Sandwich and I couldn't see any Commons but there had to be some somewhere in that lot surely...
Oh and today the Wilson's Phalarope was still, at Grindon Lough near Corbridge. Although this is a great bird for the area, I've had two county birds and its a bit of a trek over to Grindon for me so I decided to sit this one out. Pity it hadn't been along the coastal strip...
This Wilson's Phal was at Cresswell Pond in 1997...it had a great attitude stalking individual flies as they landed.
