Bean There

Drove north via Cresswell and Druridge in the hope of some owls, but drew a blank again.

A quick search of the Alnmouth area and I located the herd of 23 Whooper Swan just to the south of Waterside House. The 3 Tundra Bean Geese flew in to join them, giving good, but distant views.

The tide was in at Stag Rocks and gave Red-necked Grebe, Black-throated Diver and 7 Slavonian Grebe. There were 500+ Common Scoter, but again no Velvets.
East Chevington still held Slavonian Grebe and Common Scoter, but the Bearded Tit failed to show in the deteriorating conditions.
