Some shots off, and around Shields Pier.
Rocky the Rock Pipit, had to keep backing away to get it in focus, nearly fell over it twice :-)
and a Pied Wagtail that was following the Buntings around
And a shot of a male Eider, where you can actually see its eye!
What a treat Terry, top of the shop has to be the Snow Bunting of course, but I do like the Eider too with as you say a good look at it's eye.
