A nice afternoon I decided to go to Druridge bay country park. Nothing much on the lake except a nice male Red breasted merganser feeding in the middle of the lake. The above pic is a bit distant but worth the effort I thought. Eleven Crossbills were feeding in the pines in the north east corner. The sun was low when I went to scan East chevington. The best here was 119 Whooper swans. Very vocal flying around a lot they were being joined by dozens of Pink footed geese coming in to roost. There was also 400 or so Pink feets at Widdrington.
