Tynemouth Glossy Ibis Overshadowed

A very tame Glossy Ibis turned up in Tynemouth a few days ago, and this morning was taking a paddle in a small flooded are at Beaconsfield.

A first for Tynemouth, only to be overshadowed, by an over flying Buzzard, possibly another first!
The Ibis was quite upset.

Yellow-rumped Warbler

A quick twitch to County Durham and the Yellow-rumped Warbler was quickly located, though only a poor, brief sighting, but with yellow rump conspicuous as it flew deeper into the housing estate.

After an hour we called it quits and headed back to the car, only to relocate the bird sitting out in the open. Record shot captured :)
