Flushed a jack snipe today from the marsh behind the ravensworth hotel, lamesley. Also 2 snipe here.
109 greylags in field next to lamesley wm, still no white fronts.
Kibblesworth common had 100+ fieldfare.
Tyne at stella and fields near landfill had 1500-2000 lrg gulls, hard to view in strong winds though.
Tyne at costco had goldeneye.
Fields at ravensworth fell had flock of linnets 100+, need to have a closer look incase a few twite are with them?
So three new year ticks today, jack snipe, goldeneye and linnet, lets see whats about tomorrow in gateshead?
