A trip to St Marys in the hope of some migrants found no new arrivals and a few geese departing. The Skylarks were quite active, but apart fro a pair of amorous Blackbirds little sign of Spring around. Canny chat with fellow birders and toggers not that many people around. Massive Aurora forecast, was nipped in the bud by cloud cover.
Pied wheatear, Newbiggin.
