Attempted to get away for a day but mobile phone and work screwed things up totally. Constant interruptions to my day out and problems innumerable to solve tomorrow. Good meal at Boulmer where the tide came in, 14 Shelduck and equal numbers of Ringed Plover and Redshank grazed the foreshore. A Peregrine did a fly through scattering Lapwings and Jackdaws in the process and Herons squabbled on the foreshore as the tide came in. On the coastal path spuggies were sunbathing and the local farmer showed true straight line talent cutting silage as the air sea rescue helicopter hovered nearby.
Then headed inland through Alnwick and Rothbury ending up in a favourite spot overlooking Caistron Gravel pits. Parked in a gate and pissed off a farmer but the views were worth it.
