Had a run around the local area again today in phenominal temperatures, hard to believe it is 1st October.
The Pectoral Sandpiper showed well outside the hide at Saltholme along with a Ruff. Stopped at Newburn around tea time to eat our sanies and enjoy the breeze when a white leucistic knot flew in. There were plenty of other waders there too. A group of Sandwich Tern were fishing just off the tideline, occassionally landing on the beach. We then went over to the Headland where there were quite a few Red Throated Diver on the sea.
