East Chevington

Lesser Redpoll...East Chevington

View of the Cheviot hills from Druridge Bay country park

Up early and a good walk along the beach at East Chevington and a walk around Ladyburn lake at Druridge Bay CP and back to East Chevington via the back of the North pool through the Alders. Here there was a flock of at least 18 Lesser Redpolls which included many colourful males. 
A good variety of wildfowl on East Chevington included many fine Goldeneye and there was also a Red necked Grebe on the North pool. Ladyburn lake also held a variety of wildfowl but a wind surfer was making many birds take to the air. The highlight here were 3 Long tailed ducks but only a single Pochard could be found.
