Delightful Druridge and Wonderful Whitley

Posted on 16 January, 2017 at 15:25

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.
First Rock Pipit of the year, Turnstones making tracks, more Sanderling and Curlew coming in to roost
