We went North for the weekend of 6 September as our son wa getting married at Warkworth on the Northumbrian Coast, with the wedding reception held in Alnwick Castle. Here are the happy couple.
So it wsn't really a weekend to get out and do much birding(-:). However, on the way up we called at Cresswell Beach and had a quick glimpse of what Druridge Bay reserves might have to offer on future visits. At Cresswell we saw Turnstone
As we left Warkworth on the Monday morning we stopped in a layby overloking the Coquet estuary. There were lots of Cormorant and Heron on the far shore, along with a couple of female Goosander.
