Had an evening visit to Dru tonight, 1900-2030. Nothing much to report, it was bright, but still a freezin cold easterly.
Two welcome year-ticks, common buzzard which I picked up being mobbed by crows over the farm, it then headed south into the wood at Warkworth Lane, followed by the pursuing crows the whole way. The second was a long-awaited fulmar offshore.The highlight of the evening was a fox strolling about the Budge fields, other than that , little of note really.
More weird Dru behaviour to report, I disturbed 'a middle-aged couple' 'up to no good' in the Oddie hide - they looked a bit flustered when I walked in............grim!
Had lunch at Stag Rocks, Bamburgh, there were still 40+ purple sandpiper son the rocks and lots of sarnie terns about.
96 common buzzard
