Finally i got the Enthusiasm and Time to Join Keith in nipping over to Northumberland for the day and go see the brilliant Adult Stilt Sandpiper that had been found at Low Newton on Sunday. What a cracker this bird was.
Arctic Skuas from near Coquet Island were the highlights. Cresswell held the best birds however in the form of Ruff, Little Ringed Plover, a Juv Long-tailed Duck and few Terns. Otherwise everywhere was surprisingly quiet.
