Sundays Wandering

Out for a day with John we headed for East Chevington where the Red-backed Shrike awaited us, some good views were had, as well as a good bit of Chat with various others coming for a looksee also.

Off down to Druridge where after about 30mins wait a Long-eared Owl made an appearance and it only took about 2mins for it to catch something and head back to the family.

Then onto Blyth for a refreshment break whilst checking out the river.  Plenty of Curlews, a few Eider, Redshank and 5 Female Goosander.  A trip up to Castle Island, nothing out of the normal but John was morphing into Butterfly and Moth Explorer mode.  There were lots of Male and Female Ringlets around and several Silver Ys.

Great day as usual and the weather was contradictory to the BBC's witterings plus I got John home in time to his temporary residence (Villa Premier Inn Longbenton) as he was a tad tired by now for reasons most of you know by know.  Keep Smililing.
