A few more birds for the list.

Tried hard the past few days to get some of the birds which may soon disappear and a couple of visits to some local areas got us the birds we wanted.
Pink Footed Geese at Haverton together with what we assumed was a Tundra Bean Goose but which could well be a Taiga.
Managed to see a White Fronted Goose at Scaling Dam (but no photo) and the very obliging over-wintering Ring Ouzel at Roxby.
We spotted the Green Winged Teal from the top car park at Dormans Pool but by the time we got down to the hide it was outside on the grass - but not for long before it wandered back along the edge of the water and out of sight again.
Pair of Goosander at the brick pond at Hartburn.
Buzzard at Hutton Rudby
 Long Tailed Tits at Clay Bank
A very large Peregrine at Haverton
Great Spotted Woodpecker at Clay Bank
