A nice selection

With a good weather forecast it seemed the only thing to do to get up to Cresswell and Druridge this morning.
We were not to be disappointed.
First stop Cresswell hide and the sandbank was very nicely populated
Spotted Redshank


Greenshank - could see five but there may have been more behind the reeds to the right


Then after a bite to eat at The Country Barn ,which is worth a visit, we went to Druridge ponds where there was a
Common Sandpiper

After the obligatory vanilla ice cream a quick squint over the beach brought into view half a dozen
Sanderling - nice to see them returning and doing what they do best - running.
A couple of pairs of Ringed Plover were amongst them

A very enjoyable trip and I will describe the Butterfly and Dragonfly sightings next post

Nice post. Sounds like a worth while trip. Nice to be able to get so many decent shots in on day.
