After a fruitless start at Burdon Moor it was up to Stag Rocks to begin a run down the Northumberland coast. Not a great deal on the sea, but there were 3 summer plumage Slavonian Grebe, 4 Long-tailed Duck, 3 Common Scoter and several Puffin. Star bird here though was the first Sandwich Tern of year flying north.

The scrape at Newton was quiet, but still held 19 Pink-footed Geese.

No sign of the Bearded Tit at East Chevington north pool, but there were 3 Pintail here. A pair of Marsh Harrier put on a great show over the south pool.

Cresswell was the last port of call where there were 7 Avocet and 2 Stonechat, but not a lot else.

A canny day out.
