12th June Washington WFP
A brief visit for the new star birds of the week proved sucessful
127.Avocet 2 were seen from the Wader hide providing excellent
views!Great to add them as my first for Tyne and
Wear.
Little ringed plover 2
Common tern 30+

(The above Avocets which have been at Washington since the 7th and a White stork flying over the same place on the 9th bring the county total up to 208)
