Drove round to the Car Park but just sat in the car as it was a bit wild to say the least and watched the Lapwings battle against the wind. No Gulls were flying and the place was absolutely devoid of Starlings apart from a lone one sitting on top of the parking payment machine.
Moved along to Tynemouth Park and was surprised to see a couple of Tufted Ducks and a few Sygnets hanging around where the public normally feed them, although I was the only stupid member of the public around. Although I must take my hat off to the council employee who looked like he was tidying up around the bushes and pruning, if it had been me I would have been sitting in the back of the van with a cuppa reading the paper.
Most surprising of all was the presence of a Barnacle Goose which also came over towards me when I walked around which was most strange.
