Chester-le-street riverside.

 We've many a happy experience bird wise at this regular duck feeding site over the last few years, so with nowt else on the radar really to try for this afternoon we headed down the A1.... again.
It did take the return leg of this venture here before I picked up 'the Scaup'. Interesting bird,all signs of a female but maybe still in eclipse mode.?

 Love was in the air here, Mutes bonding including young birds and a few fights going off regarding mating! How I miss this sight in Marine park these days.
Only one pair of Goosanders on view this visted, and they kept to the far bank.

Nice all the same.
