A nice way to end the day

Saturdays sojourn started on the Carr then to Alnwick (nice Nuthatch), Boulmer (good numbers of Sanderling, Dunlin and Shelduck), Amble (snack attack), Hauxley (flooded and all the Wigeon on the sea), Druridge (aborted due to invasion organised group) and finally Cresswell where the Barn Owl showed well between 4.20 and 4.40 before heading back into its barn.
Also at Cresswell Graeme B found the overwintering Ruff claimed in the bird race a few weeks ago feeding with Redshank, Oystercatcher and Turnstone in the fields to the north west of the pond.
A glowing Turnstone at Amble. Oh for more good light as the days stretch out.
