19/20-06-07 Little R Egret

BLUE EYED GRASS


Had a run to Hauxley for the reported Little Egret which was on the West side and then flew to the South pool not one of my favourite places I always think it should be better than it is, I did get a new flower to me Blue Eyed Grass, and later a fantastic show out at sea hundreds of Gannets, Puffins, Guillemots, Gulls and Terns ploughed into the sea just offshore I only picked out one Razorbill ,but what a spectacle just a mass of birds everywhere you looked not sure what they where feeding on some gulls had Pipe Fish but one Puffin had a bill full of Sand Eels .
Wednesday and back up the coast stopped at Cresswell 9 Little Gulls with one Digiscoped on the causeway, on to Druridge pools the screen has been vandalised with not much to be seen here or at the other hides had another look at the sea from the point but not as much action here as last night
