White Stork?

25 Apr

Eschewed the countryside today for a change and went into Newcastle, partly to show the wife the Kittiwake colony nesting on and around the Tyne Bridge, however driving past Cramlington I spotted a very large bird circling high above the Merck-Sharpe and Dohme factory.

Assumed it was just a heron behaving oddly so pulled in to try and get a better look but it was so high and in bad light that I couldn’t do anything other than shrug my shoulders and put it down to exactly that.

When I returned home and checked whats been going on in the region I found that the white stork reported earlier in the morning had made its way up to Cresswell and then Druridge Pools.

Wonder if that was what we saw above Cramlington? Just one of those nagging doubts – well it looks kinda like a heron but doesn’t feel right for a heron, but what else could it be?

Guess I’ll never know!
