Only a short visit to Boulmer today with Jane and Bunty. Had a large juv Peregrine chase the waders at Longhoughton Steel then move off north. On the rocks before the tide pushed them off were 300 Curlew, 300 Golden Plover, 100+ Oystercatchers, 2 Grey Plover in summer plumage, 3 Knot, 5 Bar tailed Godwit and a few each Dunlin, Redshank, Turnstone and Ringed Plover.
I hear that there are 2 juvenile Red backed Shrikes at Howick. The White Pelican is still at Cresswell.
