No proper birding today. I woke, after a late night at chez Biggs, with a wooly head so had a lie in. The rest of the day was spent catching up. I took the pic above from Corby Crags, west of Alnwick after I had been sent on a mission to collect greenery for Jane's wreath making exploits.
Bunty's morning walk was around the Howick woods. On the well flooded pond, a Little Grebe was the only thing of note, while 50+ Redwings, 5 Mistle Thrushes and 12+ Blackbirds were feeding in yews on the way back.
The afternoon stroll was at Boulmer. The only thing that merited a raised binocular was a group of 3 Red breasted Mergansers flying north.
Must do better next week....
