A monitoring trip to Budle Bay and Fenham Flats produced a range of interesting species. The goose flock on Ross held barnacle (250+), greylag (130+), light bellied brent (120+) and pink-footed geese (40+). There were also 40+ teal in flooded fields on Ross. A female hen harrier floated north.
1000 light bellied brents were feedding on temporary pasture at Smeafield.
A male peregrine killed a redshank just to the south of the Lindisfarne causeway.
