Nice Places

A trip up the coast produced a few nice birds.
I wandered around the outside of the east side of the conifer plantation at the entrance to Druridge pools and spent a while just watching for any bird movement. A bird flew out of the trees toward me and perched on a fallen trunk.

I was pleased to see it was a Turtle Dove which after a short while flew off toward the farm development over the road.
Then a wander onto the beach where I could see a lot of divers quite close in on a dropping tide.
So  with a bit of plodging, had a try to grab a pic of a Red Throated diver

The remainder of the day produced some nice birds

Found it hard to leave with this view beyond Cresswell Pond

Had good numbers of Stonechats in Cresswell vicinity late last week, many juvs also.
I saw a Turtle Dove at Cresswell then Bells Farm a while back and despite putting it out it was never seen again. I wonder............
