16-09-09 Estuary & St Mary's

Called in to Blyth estuary and had a walk in both directions large number of waders further up and over the other side to far for bins ,Godwit & Knot near the small outfall, up to eight Whinchats near the settling pools and Wheatear, Linnets, Reed Buntings + single Sedge Warbler, gulls collecting in the compound again, Willow Warbler in the bushes ,3 Swallows over, a dog walker just ahead of me flushed the waders from the side of the boat yard , from here I went to St Mary's thinking there may be some migrants around and to check the rocks before the tide covered them, but it was very disappointing miss timed the tide as everything was gone , two large flocks of Golden Plover about a thousand wheeling around the lighthouse, but no Whinchats around or much else.
