Tufted brood on Ladyburn lake
Elegant seed cage of Wild Carrot, Druridge bay CP
Only the hardy souls were brave enough to take a dip in the cold North sea
Corprinus auricomis above and below, Abbey woods
Towards the Northern end of Druridge bay yesterday. A walk around Ladyburn lake at Druridge bay cp produced mainly young birds of common species but notable were three broods of Tufted ducks and one of Gadwall. On the sea was a fine Black throated diver which made its way south towards East chevington as the tide came in and was joined by four Red throated divers, there were fewer Terns here and only a handful of Gannets feeding inshore. Lots of Jellyfish but Amber insisted of swimming in the sea. Back home more fungi appearing as the heavy showers continue to fall. The pics were taken on the edge of Abbey woods. The local Swifts have all gone with only a single one flying around with the House martins yesterday.
