Payed a quick visit this morning and was pleasantly surprised to see some more work being done to the wetland by some of the local birders. A big thank you for taking the time to do something which should have been done by North Tyneside council years ago. Its looking much better already as the main island has been cut and cleared ( you cant really see the difference in photo). I wont name you but will thank you in person next time I bump into you all.
A bit of seawatch this morning with a few Guillemots and young noted, Gannets, 6 Common Scoter, 2 Fulmar and a few Eider offshore, I gave up as visibility was terrible. Another of the local guys had had 3 Storm Petrel past and he's also had adt Mediterranean Gull and juv Roseate Tern here during the week.
