A trip to Newcastle gave me a chance to catch up with a few species that I haven't seen for a while.
Little Owl - not seen one of these since Oct 2008.
Smew - not seen one of these since early 2008. I've never had a view this good though.
Splendid looking bird.
Good to see the bird stretch it's wings.
I hadn't seen Roe Deer since 2007.
