Out & About in Gateshead

I had a drive around some of the most frequented spots in Gateshead the other day in the hope that something different might have dropped in, alas no. I started at Far Pastures where there was more around the carpark and up the lane than there was on the pond. Garden Warbler, Blackcap and Whitethroat were all heard but unfortunately only briefly seen. Next stop was Shibdon Ponds where the most exciting thing was a crow landing on one of the islands. It was then on to Lamesley where again nothing out of the ordinary was seen. Again, Burdon Moor was quite quiet, although I did manage to get a couple of shots of a Crow carrying a frog or toad.
