North Gare Sands - WeBS Count - Sunday 15th February 2015

Today, I was holiday cover for the North Gare WeBS count for Natural England. The day was a bit misty, but very mild and pleasant.

Bird Count was as follows:

Redshank 5
Black-headed Gull 102
Herring Gull 6
Red-breasted Merganser 8
Grey Plover 7
Turnstone 2
Oystercatcher 25
Shag 3
Cormorant 1
Dunlin 3

Just outside of the survey area, there was a larger raft of 11 Shag in the main shipping line of the River Tees.

As I walked along the beach at Seaton Snook, a flock of 14 Snow Buntings took off from the rocks flew around my head before returning to the rocks.
