Down South 16th February

When I say down South I mean south of the River Coquet,our first port of call was East Chevington where a female Smew was eventually found sitting on a rock on the main island,we also noted a
couple of Great Crested Grebes still in non breeding plumage ,the most obvious birds on the lake
were the 37 Goldeneye their breeding calls echoing around the pond,on our way back to the car a
single Short Eared Owl floated past.Our adventure continued via Cresswell Pond which held a
female Scaup and nearby were 60 Twite,our last port of call was Weldon Bridge where a Marsh Tit
was found.
