I have now changed from being a bad bird watcher to a bad butterfly watcher and as I walked along the dunes north of Dunstanburgh Castle there they were in all their beauty.....ringlets, meadow browns, skippers, don't know whether small or large, small tortoiseshells, common blues, green-veined whites, other whites all enjoying the flowers and sunshine with me. Great!!!! Also saw about 50 goosanders off the coast at Boulmer last week. The coast is a lovely place to be just now with the waders returning also.
