Called in at Newbiggin on the way back from a job yesterday. The new maritime centre is nearing completion but I was far more interested in finding some of the Med Gulls that frequent the beach. A much tidier bird than the Black headed Gull especially with that true black head.
Then on to Castle Island where a thunder storm was passing to the south. No Spoonbills but a nice summer plumage Black tailed Godwit fed way out of camera range but as orange as a many lass in the Big Market of an night.
Dark skies make good backgrounds for white birds and there were plenty of Mute Swans, Canada Geese and a farmyard Goose to practice on.
Then heading home using the back roads past Bellasis where a male Yellowhammer was giving it what for from a sign.
