Had the day off so I went to Newbiggin to see the desert wheatear. I won't go into deatails but I didn't see it and I can now add it to my list of birds I have either not seen or they have desided to fly off before I arrive.
The list includes Desert Wheatear, Bittern, American Wigeon, lesser grey Shrike, Humes leaf Warbler, Yellow browed Warbler, Red breasted Flycatcher, Dotterel, Wryneck and many more.

Hey don't worry Crammy, I could tell you my list of "dipped" birds, but you'd need all night to read it its so long !!

Some you win, some you don't eh..... I always think if you don't see the bird you're after it makes it even better when you do eventually catch up with one...
