Druridge bay

Hadston dunes

Bloody cranesbill

Branched bur-reed

Down at Druridge bay country park and beach yesterday. Most notable things were Terns feeding close inshore. Up to a hundred in a feeding frenzy but most of them were Common and Sandwich with a few Arctic among them. A Roseate Tern flew past them heading South. Also lots of Gannets, Kittiwakes and Fulmars and this attracted a couple of Arctic skuas. There were 19 Red throated divers and one Black throated...the first I have seen in the bay for years. I was too low on the beach to get any photos of them so a few in the dunes and around the lake will have to do.
