Visited to a couple of favourite inland sites, Hedgeley and Ingram Valley, I wasn't the only one visiting Ingram, its a popular area when the weather is reasonable, a nice Whinchat, Common Sandpiper and hundreds of Sand Martins made the short visit worthwhile.
Sunday morning was my only proper outing of the weekend, coastal watching. Met up with Stewart and headed to Beadnell, a brief seawatch was unproductive, Gannets, Kittiwake, distant Terns and groups of Auks offshore. There were a couple of Common Sandpiper in sheltered bay to the north of the point. A cracking Wheatear posed for us in Beadnell Bay as we headed back to the car.
