Druridge Bay December 3rd 2013

On a morning which was dull and grey but unseasonably mild we headed first to Newbiggin where about 12 Purple Sandpipers were noted on the rocks near Beacon Point.The beach was checked next and amongst the small group of gulls were at least 10 Mediterranean Gulls of varying ages.Next to Cresswell Pond where we added Scaup,Lapwing,Gadwall and a very smart male Pintail to the list.As we headed back north towards Chevington we were stopped in our tracks by the sight of at least 2500 Pink-Footed Geese feeding in a field next to the road.At East Chevington the north pool yielded up a single Slavonian Grebe and a couple of lovely Long Tailed Ducks.
