Gulls and Serpents 26th February

A trip to the dentists at Cramlington on such a lovely day was put to good use when to carry on with the dental theme,with time to fill and bridges to cross we decided to get our teeth into some Gulls at North Shields Fish Quay,more specifically the widely reported Glaucous Gull seen there over the last few days.We were not disappointed, sitting on the roof of the sheds amongst theGreat Black Backs and the Herring Gulls was the unmistakable pale juvenile Glaucous Gull resplendent with white wing tips.Of further interest was a Cormorant of the "sinensis" race and a number of Turnstones on the roof.
After the busy hustle and bustle of the Fish Quay Branton seemed very quiet but a quick visit to the ponds produced our first Adder of the year,a great end to the day.
