for warmer places
Out and about in the area today - Started at Hartlepool headland where good numbers of Meadow Pipit were around the Jewish Cemetery, but nothing else of note. At the Heugh pier there was a Wheatear, 4 Rock Pipit, 2 Purple Sandpiper and 22 Barnacle Geese flying in off the sea. The Mediterranean Gull was sat on it's lamp post at Newburn. North Gare was dead! The Red-backed Shrike was still at Dormans pool area (9th Day so far, but don't expect it to stay much longer with the impending change of weather).
