Sunny Sunny Newcastle

Yes, sunny Newcastle, newly discovered birding Mecca. Take a stroll down the promenade! Eat an ice-cream! Buy some chips! Treat yourself to a new pair of shoes! Bump into my mate leonard and he'll ask where you're from and when your birthday is! Stay away from the man who smells of solvents! Have a walk down the beach to see the radioactive fish that wash up with 4 heads and no fins because of Sellafield! Watch natural processes in action as longshore drift takes all the crud from Newcastle further along the coast to the local nature reserve!
Sunny, sunny Newcastle....where it rains a lot. Newcastle is now nearly twice as good thanks to the discovery of breeding Sociable Plovers. Don't believe me?....well, have a look for yourself - I caught this one pecking at my nuts.
