Shorelark, Blyth Harbour

An approachable Shorelark lurking around Blyth South Harbour?
Count me in!
The Shorelark / Eremophila Alpestris; is a scant visitor to our North East coast during the colder months of the year and at the mouth of the river Blyth I saw my first!
I had read online of news of an individual bird at the harbour and unfortunately I first got the news when I was preoccupied at the gym and the sun was already fading, so I decided that the following afternoon I would go and have a look after work. 
That day I was treated to some fantastic views of this lone Lark.
