Mission Aborted

A heavy swell at the harbour mouth at Amble prevented the planned Marinelife survey from taking place today, a great shame as it was an otherwise perfect today. Ross Ahmed and I decided to head back down to Ashington to photograph the Waxwing in the fine morning light. Whilst these are an improvement on previous efforts I'm still not satisfied with the results and another visit may yet be required, if the berries don't run out first. With only 10-12 individuals left today the berry supply is looking perilously low and I can't see them staying past the weekend.
