Tern and tern again

Posted on 18 July, 2020 at 0:30

Yesterday Julia and I went to the beach just north of Newbiggin - hoping it would be fairly empty.  It was - except for the normal smattering of dog walkers. And also - a 'cat walker'.  So - we are not the only ones who take our cats for walks in a harness.  Mind you, ours only get to the garden - not the beach!

Most bird life was out to sea - and zooming by.  Gulls, gannets and terns were on show.  Gulls I avoid but I did attempt some pictures of the speedy terns...

A Sandwich Tern by my reckoning... Easier to get close up photos on the Farne Islands, as with this Arctic Tern a couple of years ago...

Gannets were quite a way out, flying both north and south - some adults, some juveniles (with the darker markings)

Again, if you go to the right location you can get much closer views - witness these pictures from Bempton Cliffs in 2012

There weren't many shore birds about - a couple of distant Sanderling and Dunlin - in summer plumage; but the closest was a female Linnet

An unspectacular but pleasant enough outing - all that was missing was finishing at a cafe for 'coffee and cakes'!

I wish to show my thanks to you for bailing me out of this problem. Just after surfing throughout the the net and seeing notions that were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was done. Living minus the answers to the difficulties you've sorted out through your guide is a serious case, and the kind that could have badly affected my entire career if I hadn't come across the website. Your primary natural talent and kindness in playing with all the things was crucial. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't come upon such a step like this. I can now look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for this skilled and amazing guide. I won't think twice to endorse the website to any person who desires assistance about this area.

I and my friends were checking out the best tips on your website and instantly came up with an awful suspicion I had not thanked the site owner for them. The people were absolutely excited to see them and already have pretty much been enjoying those things. Appreciation for actually being very helpful as well as for selecting some amazing areas most people are really wanting to be informed on. My sincere regret for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.
