A report of alpine swift at Woodhorn had me heading in the other direction, to Druridge, just in case it decided to go north, if it did, I didn't see it.
Nothing much else, there were still drake and duck garganey on the Budge fields. Two rtd's and a great-crested grebe were on the sea, still no commic terns though.....A ringed plover flying overhead onto the beach was a welcome year tick, there were also six sanderling and two dunlin further up the beach.
