Started off the morning with a dodge around gateshead.
Shibdon pond - black tailed godwit, water rail
Lamesley flash pool - 2 x ruff
Timber beach - common sandpiper
Then i decided on another try for the bonaparte's gull, no luck again after a 2 hour search :( but a bonus was an adult Black Tern off Whitburn steel and 2 med gulls adult + 1st year birds. Hopefully its found again and i'll be straight down for it :0
