Last week I went up to Beadnell via the bus and walked down to the Long Nanny just to see if it was feasible,Meadow Pipits and Skylarks seemed everywhere but no Stonechats, the site as expected was deserted the beach looked as though it had been ravished by the winter seas , the sand stack that I last saw Sand Martins investigating has vanished and even the course of the burn has changed slightly . The Tern nesting area seems much lower than other years and I fear for the birds on the large Spring tides . only a few Gulls on the burn outlet but there was a large flock around a nearby pool in a field , about 12 or so Ringed Plover along the beach in with Sanderling . I walked to High Newton along the beach which is by far the easier and quicker route although I prefer the route along the short grass path which is good for Butterflies but as I had to connect with the bus I chose the quicker route ,which saw me have time for a drink in the nearby Joiners Arms.
