Pegswood CP Phase II (opening soon)
Sea-watcher remains at Newbiggin
Today back in the lowlands I tried to look for waders on the Wansbeck and Blyth Estuaries with limited success. Castle Island yielded a blank for waders, a Common Tern here was first this year at this site, a 1st-summer drake Red-breasted Merganser and two broods of Mallard (x8 and x11) noted.
On the Blyth estuary another 1st-summer drake Red-breasted Merganser, a smattering of Curlew, two Common Terns, a good count of Crows (38) and 24 presumably non-breeding Black-tailed Godwits in the sheep field on the north side of the estuary.
