Pacific Diver

Having spent last weekend in Cornwall hoping to see the Pacific Diver that has been wintering there for the last 10 years in Mount’s Bay and failing ┬áit was nice to get another chance to see one today in Northumberland. A long drive but a successful outcome seeing the bird on Ladyburn Lake, Druridge Country Park. Nice fish and chips in Amble as well.

Cornwall

A weekend in Cornwall birding. Best birds were Eastern Black Redstart at Mousehole, Chough at Cape Cornwall, Hudsonian Whimbrel at Perranuthnoe, Green-winged Teal and Spoonbill at Hayle and Lesser Scaup at Dozmary Pool. St Michael’s Mount was spectacular in the early morning light today.
