Cracking visit over the water today.

 First off -apologies again for not blogging for a while due to mainly circumstances beyond my having free time to get out!. So with the sun god showing this morning and a gorgeous  little red- head still being reported at Killingworth I took the chance of trying for some pics..
On arrival here she was in the NW corner of the small lake but soon made off towards the reeded area.
 After about half a hour she started to show signs of moving off from this area- so I made my way back along the road here.
 Arse parked on the small wall here as she passed close by- treated to the best encounter with Smew I've ever had!

 And across the road on the large lake- Close encounters of Goldeneye hovering around with many a 'sliced' white feeding.

 Then onto the QE2 in Ashington.  After not seeing nowt but the usual from the car park I walked around the lake. Picked up the reported Slavonian grebe in the southern area of this body of water..tad distant for my lens and the light was shite...(blah..blah..)
