Tuesday 26th January

A quick 20-minute scan of the Motorway and Alders Lakes at New Hythe at lunchtime today. No sign of Saturday's Smew or Redpolls, but a pair of Goldeneye on Little Alders Lake. The male displayed on a couple of occasions, I attempted some photos (no more comments Warren!) but with the usual results - maybe I ought to stick to mammals!

We've got goldeneyes displaying up here on the Tyne at the moment- very entertaining birds http://cabinetofcuriosities-greenfingers.blogspot.com/2010/01/spring-show-offs.html

Adam,
I took some Goldeneye photo's last winter of the one that visited my patch lake, the photo's were well worse than yours today!!

You do take a good fox pic though ;-)

Nice to see you made it down to the lakes to get a record photo of the Goldeneye's.
Nice to know there still there.
