Up to Bamburgh in the rain this morning. Inland to Hoppen Kiln Flash and the Pectoral and Wood Sandpipers were seen immediately and 4 Garganey dropped in. A superb site, just a shame it is distant viewing from the road.

Another look at the Lesser Yellowlegs at Beadnell, then a wander down to Long Nanny to the tern colony. Several hundred Arctic Tern, 4 Little Tern and a few Sandwich Tern. Just as I was leaving a Little Gull dropped onto the beach.

Newton was quite with a Common Sandpiper on the pool, Yellow Wagtail and a couple of pairs of Stonechat at the scrape.

On the way home there was a Marsh Harrier just outside Ashington and a smart drake Garganey at Bothal Pond.
