A walk along the River Aln

An afternoon stroll along the River Aln, from Lesbury towards Alnwick, threw up  a couple of pleasant  surprises.

I had assumed, having not seen any for a couple of weeks, that the Sawbills had all decamped further north to breed.

 But to my surprise, I  soon found myself in the company of a female Goosander shepherding 3 young  up river.

A little further on, 2 Common Sandpipers, each one
on its own stone, seemed to be in a fairly serious vocal relationship with  each other.

 I look forward to monitoring any further progress in that direction!
