On our way to Druridge Pools, a stop at the north end of Cresswell produced the adult White-rumped Sandpiper on the beach opposite. Upon reaching the Budge Fields, the number of Black-tailed Godwits had increased to 56.
There was a greater variety here on Monday, including a Spotted Redshank, 3 Green Sandpipers, a Wood Sandpiper and a juvenile Garganey.
Finally, at Hadston it felt a bit like autumn with a Redstart among a few phylloscs and Robins flitting around the hawthorns...
|White-rumped Sandpiper - not quite the kind of views we had a week ago on North Uist but still good to see!|
|Great Skua passing Newbiggin|
|Sparrowhawk - briefly sat on a fence post just metres from the Budge Screen!|
