River Tyne, Ponteland, Bee-eater Land and Big Waters Catch Up

Just a couple of things from the last few days.  Didn't have time to do much but got out a couple of times.
Early morning down on the Tyne in Newcastle, went looking for birds down the winding stairs from the Vermont Hotel but the only things seen and heard were Blackbirds with the inevitable Gulls soaring overhead, then a wander along the Quayside but what a beautiful morning.

A trip up to the North of Newcastle and my first view of the Little Owl for quite a while.  If you look at my header picture its the same place and not much different from Allan F's picture.

Remember the Bee-eater, who doesn't, well I still have a few more bits and pieces and this movie gets quite close in whilst it is demolishing a handful of Wasps.
Remember to watch thru UTube HD

A shot of a Grey Heron on "The Big Waters Tree".  
Still one of the most photogenic birds around in my opinion

Finally another small video from last weekend at Big Waters with the Greylag that has more than the standard splash of white about it.  Even the Mute Swan looks at it closely as it passes.
