Cresswell beach

Sea Rocket

Dune Waxcap


Rock formation exposed from recent erosion

Early morning 'mirage' shot of Coquet island from Cresswell beach

I have had a few outings to Cresswell as this forms part of my botanic survey square. Plants in flower now are becoming fewer but there is a large patch of late flowering Sea Rocket on the beach North of Snab point. On Thursday I had a good trudge around Stobswood and Widdrington tip and chatted to Admc who was passing on his new bike near Felton Lane. Only birding highlights were 30 Redwing and 5 Snipe at the old tip.

There common, I have seen them in the dunes at Hauxley, Druridge and East Chevington and they are quite numerous in the dunes at Cresswell.
