Visited Boulmer birder's new cottage in Howick today. Work in progress but when finished a fine place to live in an enviable location. Excellent area not just for birds but one of the best coastal locations for flowers and other wildlife. We watched three Buzzards from the kitchen door and a singing Mistle thrush on the wing. I don't think either of us have heard a Mistler singing on the wing before. No doubt Stewart will come up with some good sightings and discoveries and rewrite some of the history books for that area.
On the way over I noticed Denwick churchyard awash with yellow and white of the Snowdrop and Winter aconite. Winter aconite is quite scarce south of the Coquet but a fine display at Denwick meant I had to stop for a few shots on the way back.
