Crag Martin and a Seawatch.

That's it the early nights are upon us and so no more birding. Although week last Friday I did manage to see the Crag Martin which was a UK lifer up at Chesterfield Crooked Spire on our way to Amsterdam via Hull.  As we were dropping the dogs off at Rachel's mothers who lives in Chesterfield I managed 2 views of the great looking bird.

That's been it for birding until today when sea watching has been brilliant.
I watched from Gunton Cliffs rd.
