I took a trip to Rainton Meadows in Durham today - haven't been there for ages. Totally dead - apart from Mallard, Mute Swan, Coot etc. I came back via Washington WWT which was a bit of a mistake because a LEGO event meant that it was overrun by CHILDREN!!
However the Avocets are a delight. There was also a good group of Godwits - which I am struggling to identify. After much perusal I've gone for Black-tailed (until someone tells me I'm wrong).
I also heard a strong song which I thought I recognised - Blackcap I thought... And blow me down, I was right!
