Quick update...

Another trip to Newton scrapes on Wednesday evening (25th) didn't produce the Pectoral or Curlew Sandpiper that had been seen the past day or two but there were masses of Dunlin in Summer plumage and a nice group of 9 Black-tailed Godwits which I hadn't managed to see yet this year.

On Friday (27th) an evening stroll along the coast near Howick produced my first Whimbrel of the Autumn and of the year but no luck with Marsh Tit again in the woods.

A good long Sunday afternoon walk around Hulne Park, Alnwick produced plenty of Swallows, a male Kestrel, Buzzards, Grey Heron, family party of Wrens, Willow Warbler and other common woodland birds but the highlight of the day was 3 Jays which gave good views and are the first I have seen this year.

Year List additions:
123: Black-Tailed Godwit
124: Whimbrel
125: Jay
