Out on my bike at the weekend in search of some relative rarities in Northumberland. And very soon caught up with the small flock of

159. Hawfinch

seen at Abbey Fields, west of Morpeth. Lovely birds on a lovely sunny morning.

Headed down to Big Waters, and where the Red-crested Pochard pair was easy to spot, but I missed out on the White-fronted geese and the Red-breasted goose. I could see a flock of geese in fields on the Northern side of the lake, but they were mostly obscured by trees, and I couldn't find anywhere to get a good enough view to see the rarer species.
