I paid another visit to Hartlepool Headland in the hope of finding something unusual in the migration.
Hartlepool Heugh Pier in the stormy seas.
Moving on to the headland showed there were lots and lots of Goldcrest about and seemed to be coming in waves.
Other birds around included a Woodcock, a few Brambling, Redpoll, plenty of Redwings, Blackbirds and Robins, Great Spotted Woodpecker, and Pied Wagtails.

- I have been digiscoping for around 18 years now and through persistence and good equipment I am getting great results. I use a Swarovski 80hd spotting scope and a Sony RX100 camera which has just replaced my old faithful Nikon P5100. The majority of my bird watching takes place in County Durham in England which has a variety of different habitats from coast to moors. Digiscoping is great because it allows me to get good photos without disturbing birds. VIEW THE LATEST PHOTOBOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
