So, I am actually writing this from my new home; the Pele Tower on the Farne Islands. We moved out today, and it is safe to say it is a truly stunning place to live, if not a little chilly at the moment.
The team have spent the last week training in Gibside, and wonderful NT property in Gateshead. We spent most of the time indoors, however in the mornings and evenings we did get out, and the variety of birds on offer was wonderful.
Below are just a few photos, but there were singing chiffchaff, treecreeper and crossbill, drumming great spotted woodpecker and the selection of birds below. Well worth a visit to this site if you are ever in the area!
|Little Grebe, Tachybaptus ruficollis|
|Nuthatch, Sitta europaea|
|European Dipper, Cinclus cinclus|
|Red Kite, Milvus milvus|
