Up the Coast, again.

Crikey, its along time since I was last here, Blogger I mean.
This morning took me to East Chevington to view the Twite flock of around fourty birds. They were feeding at the edge of the dunes along with Shorelark, Turnstones, Sanderling and Pied Wagtail. Myself and John @sedgywarbler parked ourselves at the dune edge and the birds came to within five or six paces. A delight to see.

A quick visit to Druridge Bay CP for a look at the Pacific Diver which was showing close up in the North east corner.

Earlier Tom @TomCadwallender was telling me about a decent size flock of Purple Sandpiper on Coquet Island, so thought I'd get as near as I could without paddling and sure enough there were a couple on rock ends off Hauxley.

Ten Grey Plover were nice to see. Bit of bother behind.

The North Sea was like glass. Magic moments.
