Stuck at work until 8pm yesterday meant I was unable to get up to Beadnell for the Lesser Yellowlegs. The alarm set for daft o'clock and I was wandering through the caravan site at 5.15 this morning. My heart sank when I scanned the flash pool and nowt, but a couple of Shelduck. A few more scans and the Lesser Yellowlegs popped up out of nowhere. Cracking, but distant views as it fed around the edge of the pool. Back in the car by 6.30 and at work in Newcastle by 8.00, a success!
A roadside Barn Owl was a bonus on the journey north.
