Had to take the car for its MOT to Silverlink yesterday, so on the way back, I called at North Shields fish quay to see if I could find any visiting gulls.... no luck, sadly, but I did add a couple of species to the list, and also some more on the way home:

At North Shields:

58. Eider - flock of 20-30 in the Tyne
59. Turnstone - several on the roofs of the warehouses!

Then, passing St Mary's, Whitley Bay

60. Lapwing
61. Sanderling

And passing along the dunes at Blyth:

62. Curlew
63. Golden plover
