Some practice shots...







Some of our daily visitors. Results ok considering they were taken through double glazed windows that really need cleaned...

At Seaton Point this morning a good count of 18 Whimbrel were in the field across from the car park, 1+ Lesser Whitethroat and a Willow Warbler were in the golf course bushes, a Sedge Warbler could be heard singing nearby, 2 Grey Partridges were on the runways and Linnets were everywhere with some flocks still around of up to 30 birds.

As is typical of a Bank Holiday weekend, a whole surfing and kite flying crew have decended onto Boulmer haven. I can't understand why because the beach is covered in boulders and the sea is as flat as a mill pond in the haven...I think they should go back to Druridge to see Ipin....
