7-10-08 Prestwick Carr

A drop off at Newcastle airport would give me a chance to look around Prestwick Carr but Tuesday was a crap day with rain ,rain ,rain ,pulled up to a flock of about 15 Long Tailed Tits crossing the track , but that is all I saw as the weather was grotty, so I headed down to Big Waters , there where 8 Whoopers on (one with Darvic ring) apparently the male Mute has been displaced so there is more Swans than for a long time , only 5 Mallard and a Great Crested Grebe not much to keep my interest even the feeding station was quiet, still a Hawker out near the car park Still one of the best places to see Tree Sparrow
5 of 8 Whoopers
Ringed Whooper
