Monday the 22nd another run up the coast stopped near Newbiggin to look for Hawkers as it was sunny a 1 Migrant Hawker,Common Darters and several Slivery Y's, next stop Lynemouth flash it's looking good now as the level drops , Curlew Sandpiper, Little Stint, 10 Dunlin 15 Redshank & 2 Bar Tailed , on to Cresswell but I also wanted to go seawatching, having stopped at Snab Point for 10 mins with 2 Sooty & 2 Manx I thought it would be good, so I had a quick look from the hide as there was nothing at the north end , the sand bank is drying out now but there is still a good selection of waders. A Buff Breasted Sandpiper reported later but I did not see it , so it was down to Church Point for a couple of hours , it was not as good as expected but your never sure till youve been , 3 Sooty, 2 Manx, 1 Velvet Scoter, 10 Brent, 2 Black tailed , 1 Grey Plover, 30 Wigeon & 2 Pintail also a few Meds feeding offshore
