Druridge and the Dunes

Recent visit up the coast Cresswell had up to 9 Avocets and 2 Common Sandpipers a look of the dunes saw several large flocks of Common Scoter and many Terns feeding in the bay also 3 Red Throated Divers. Druridge pools although I was looking for Dragonflies of which I could find none a Little Gull on the shore was a nice find a large group of Sand Martins feeding low over the water and some resting on branches single Dunlin also present
Bushes held numerous Sand Martins with also many feeding over the pools

 Swallow alights on the shore , not sure what the strange growth is ?
 Dunlin looking for food along the shore
 Little Gull sat with it's head in most of the time till disturbed by a Black Headed
 Betony out in force
 And here with Burnett Moths
 Good numbers of Common Blues and masses of Meadow Brown
St John's Wort but I forget which

 Dune Helleborine now fully out some 20 specimens in this group
 I had Meadow rue nearby last year but could not find it on this visit
