Newcastle bound

Off to Northumberland today, left early to see the Greater Yellowlegs, Tundra Bean, Grey Phalarope, Lesser Scaup, Ross's Geese and Eastern Black Redstart.  Get it right and it could be a dream day...........  However, the best laid plans........   We got off to a bad start by arriving at Low Hauxley only to find the Greater Yellowlegs wasn't there, followed it to Druridge Bay only to be told that 'It's just flown off, unlucky'.  It headed in the direction of East Chevington and we headed towards Holy Island to hopefully see the Eastern Black Redstart.  At least the tide was on our side as we crossed the causeway.  Another long walk along the beach to the back of the village school.  Luckily the bird was very confiding and we got some really good views.
