A brief visit to the patch today.
I stopped on the road to scan some curlew and lapwing and found five golden plover in with them, always a tricky bird at Druridge. Whilst nattering to Tom Cadwallender, we had a flock of 30 or so twite in the dunes but they wouldn't settle for a good scan through then for colour rings.
A look on the sea was less-rewarding and the bushes were quiet. The ducks had left the frozen Budge fields for the big pool but I couldn't spot yesterdays green-winged teal.
53 golden plover
PWC score will appear in my next post.
