On Saturday 14th January Julia and I headed up to East Chevington, walked down the beach to Druridge Bay and then ended up at St Mary's Island at Whitley Bay. It was a stunning day - so bright and crisp with heavy seas and then golden light as the sun set. Our trip included some diversions. There was a flood at Cresswell so we couldn't get to the Drift Cafe (disaster) and then as I took a short cut through Seaton Delaval to get to Whitley Bay there was some sort of obstruction which led to a long, unmoving queue. So I did a 3 point turn from the middle of the jam and found my way via Blyth to St Mary's Island. There was time for a cup of tea and an ice cream before our last bit of spotting.
