Another day, two more on the list! While waiting for my family to arrive back at Newcastle airport, I called in to Prestwick Carr, and walked along the path towards Ponteland golf club. There were lots of calling
107 Willow warbler
although only one observed.
Just before leaving, I heard a faint whistling, which eventually turned into a flock of birds coming in from the south, which grew and grew until there were about 200-300
108 Golden Plover
circling overhead calling. They eventually came in quite close over where I was standing, before heading north out of sight.
