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 must express some thanks to you for rescuing me from this trouble. As a result of scouting throughout the internet and finding recommendations which were not beneficial, I believed my life was done. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the problems you have fixed through your main short post is a serious case, as well as ones which may have badly affected my career if I hadn't noticed your site. Your understanding and kindness in maneuvering the whole thing was useful. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't come across such a step like this. I can at this moment relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for the expert and amazing help. I won't think twice to suggest your web blog to any person who needs to have care on this topic.

I wanted to create you that very little observation in order to give many thanks the moment again for your personal amazing concepts you've discussed on this website. It has been really wonderfully open-handed with people like you to supply without restraint all that a few people would've supplied for an ebook to help make some cash for themselves, even more so since you might have done it in case you wanted. These things also acted to provide a easy way to be certain that other people have the same keenness just as my very own to find out more and more on the topic of this matter. I'm sure there are thousands of more enjoyable occasions up front for many who view your site.
